Amazon isn't the only company paying its employees to quit.

Riot Games will be paying "unhappy" employees up to $25,000 to leave, even if they are new staff.

"Rather than allow mismatches to fester, we want to resolve them quickly. This is good for the company, and good for the professional. ... we’ll learn from this and make better hiring decisions as a result," the company said in a blog post announcing the program.

Here's the fine print: Only employees in North America are eligible, and they need to accept the bailout within the first 60 days of their time at the company.

Staff members who accept the deal will get 10 percent of their salary to quit, up to $25,000. That's much more than Amazon's $5,000 offer for warehouse workers to quit. What gives?

"Now, we don’t want to actively push people out or dare them to leave, but we do want to provide a well-lit, safe exit path," the company says.
