Ubisoft Misconduct Investigation Follow-up

A story on Bloomberg by former Kotaku reporter Jason Schreier reveals further fallout at Ubisoft from the recent flurry of misconduct allegations. Word is two executives and other staff have been placed on leave pending investigations into their conduct. Here's word:
Ubisoft Entertainment SA, one of the world’s largest video-game publishers, placed two executives and several other employees on administrative leave as part of a corporate investigation into misconduct allegations made public over the last week, according to people familiar with the situation.

The two high-ranking employees under scrutiny are Tommy François and Maxime Béland, both vice presidents in the group overseeing development of Ubisoft’s games worldwide, said the people, who asked not to be identified discussing personnel issues. Each man faced at least three claims of misconduct among a flurry of Twitter posts from named and anonymous accusers.

Neither François nor Béland responded to requests for comment. Stephanie Magnier, a spokeswoman for Ubisoft, wrote in an email: “These are under investigation, so we are not commenting further at this time.”

They aren't all based in France, though. I'm not sure what Canadian rules are for this type of behaviour. I would imagine that they're similar enough to what you find in the USA?

Well, many US states have what is called "at-will employment." This means that you can be fired for any reason (your employer didn't like your new haircut, etc.), unless the reason for firing is prohibited by law (usually based on race, sex, religion, or some immutable characteristic so identified by the law). So, honestly, in the US, unless you are fired for a handful of legal reasons, pretty much anything goes.
