Vice Fires Three Employees After Daily Beast Sexual-Harassment Report

Vice fired three employees Thursday amid an internal investigation into sexual-harassment and workplace-misconduct allegations. Citing an internal memo, CNN reports the employees were not named but their alleged misconduct was described as “inconsistent” with the values of the news outlet. “The conduct of these employees ranged from verbal and sexual harassment to other behavior that is inconsistent with our policies, our values, and the way in which we believe colleagues should work together,” the company said. The dismissals come after The Daily Beast reported in November about several current and former Vice staffers who complained of a “toxic” workplace where sexual harassment and misconduct went unchecked.
