Riot Games, the developer behind League of Legends, seems to be quite flexible when it comes to employees. The company has announced a new initiative called Queue Dodge, which allows its US employees 10% of their yearly salary if they leave the company within the first 60 days of joining.

The company has stated: "Basically, we're offering new hires cash to quit". The company has added that it's not forcing out or daring employees to quit, but the Queue Dodge is aimed at helping out new employees get back on their feet much quicker with an injection of money, if they join the company to find out it wasn't the best fit for them.

 

On top of this, Riot hopes it will increase the company's culture. Riot stated in a news post revealing Queue Dodge: "We operate on a foundation of shared mission, values, passion, trust, and mutual respect. If someone gags on the unique flavor of our culture, they'd be doing themselves and the company a disservice to hang on just for the paycheck".
