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.
