HP Director quits after allegations of sexual harassment

    Hewlett-Packard Company today surprised the public with a message : Executive Director, concurrently Chairman of the Board of Directors and President of the company Mark Hurd (Mark Hurd) resigned after allegations of sexual harassment. Such charges were brought against 53-year-old Heard by one of the company's former contractors. Her name is kept secret, but the woman is represented by lawyer Gloria Allred from Allred, Maroko & Goldberg. The investigation was conducted by independent lawyers under the supervision of the HP Board of Directors.

    The investigation revealed that Heard did not violate HP's sexual harassment policy, but he violated the HP Standards of Business Conduct. The head of the company decided to immediately leave all positions held.

    As expected, a message about this was published at night from Friday to Saturday to minimize discussion in the press.

    Mark Heard has been CEO since the beginning of 2005, succeeding Carly Fiorina.
