Resource description

On August 6, Hewlett Packard’s board forced CEO Mark Hurd to resign after the conclusion of a sexual harassment investigation. Hurd had apparently been accused by Jodie Fisher, a marketing contractor, of giving her less business with the company because she did not respond to his sexual advances. Fisher worked for HP from 2007 to 2009 helping to organise networking events. Hurd denies all the charges and the HP board also agreed that he did not violate the company’s sexual harassment policies.
