Hewlett-Packard CEO Resigns Under Sexual Harassment Probe

Posted By Houston Personal Injury Attorney || 6-Apr-2011

Mark Hurd, Chief Executive of Hewlett-Packard Co., resigned suddenly over the summer following a sexual harassment claim which was filed against him by an outside contractor.

 

Reports say that as HP launched an investigation, Hurd quit the company. The investigation reportedly found that Hurd had violated business conduct standards. The investigation was launched after HP was notified of the claim by the contractor's company in late June, reports say.

 

But reports also say that the probe found that Hurd did not violate HP's sexual harassment policy but did contravene its business conduct standards. Reports say Hurd had submitted "numerous" phony expense reports to hide his relationship with the female contractor, who had worked for HP on a marketing project from fall 2007 to fall 2009.

After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
