There seem to be so many clear ethical violations in these statements and so much dancing around the obvious statements of wrongdoing, what does HP expect to accomplish by this gibberish? Why not just fire the guy for violation of corporate policy and admit his errors? Would that not be better for the company?
Forgive me if this is the wrong place for this question. The statements in the article just seem insulting to me.
The investigation also found there were "numerous instances where the contractor received compensation and/or expense reimbursement where there was not a legitimate business purpose," Holston said in a conference call with analysts. He said the behavior reflected a "profound lack of judgment."
Is this not simply theft?
What is this statement supposed to say?
A source familiar with the situation told Reuters that Hurd never had sex with the woman and that the expense account issues stretched over two years and amounted to no more than $20,000.
It wasn't that bad?
Must seem like small change to this guy.
