Activision Blizzard Inc. said April 7 it will convert nearly 1,100 US-based contingent quality assurance workers of some divisions to full-time employees, starting July 1, Reuters reported.

The video game maker, which is being acquired by Microsoft Corp for $68.7 billion, said it will raise the minimum hourly wages for these employees — from the Activision Publishing and Blizzard divisions — to $20 or more and also offer them access to full company benefits.

Activision has been subject of multiple sexual harassment and discrimination accusations. Last month, the company reached a settlement with the US Equal Opportunity and Employment Commission, but faces other ongoing accusations.
