California has expanded its anti-discrimination lawsuit against Activision Blizzard, adding temporary workers to the female full-time employees of whom it is suing on behalf.
The state's Department of Fair Employment & Housing also alleges the game maker has interfered with its investigation.
Why it matters: While Activision Blizzard has attempted to show over the past month that it is addressing issues raised in the suit, the DFEH is turning up the heat.
Between the lines: The amended complaint was filed Monday and redefines the "group" it says was wronged by the gaming giant.
Throughout the lawsuit, the word "employees" has been changed to "workers" in reference to harassment, sex discrimination regarding pay and other allegations.
The big picture: The change comes after stories revealed toxic conditions faced by Activision Blizzard contract workers.
