One day later, Lauer was asked about the claims being made by the employee.
‘During the interview, Lauer admitted to engaging in sexual activity with the complainant,’ stated the report.
The report also revealed that NBC has cleared all senior employees and found no proof that any current executives had knowledge of Lauer’s misconduct.
‘Within the two weeks after Lauer’s termination was announced publicly by NBC News on November 29, 2017, the Company received information about three additional women, who each alleged that Lauer had engaged in inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace with them in 2000, 2001 and 2007, respectively,’ read the report.
The report was sent along with a memo from Andy Lack, the Chairman of NBC Universal.
‘The last few months have been extraordinarily difficult, with our dedicated journalists doing some of our best work ever while we endured a painful period in the spotlight including a thorough and deserved examination,’ the memo stated.
‘This has been felt by everyone in the organization, most importantly several of our colleagues who were deeply affected.
I admire their bravery and am profoundly grateful for their candor.’
” As you will see in the report, that turned out to be the case.’
The CEO of Universal, Steve Burke, instructed General Counsel Kim Burke to launch her investigation to determine three things: whether ‘any current members of NBC News or Today Show leadership, News HR or anyone else in a position of authority in the News Division had any information about inappropriate workplace behavior by Lauer prior to November 27, 2017, and, if so, what, if anything, was done to address the behavior; if there have been other incidents of inappropriate workplace behavior in the News Division, and if so, whether such incidents were reported and addressed appropriately; and employees in the News Division are comfortable reporting concerns about workplace behavior, and if not, why not.
Investigators ‘found no evidence indicating that any NBC News or Today Show leadership, News HR or others in positions of authority in the News Division received any complaints about Lauer’s workplace behavior prior to November 27, 2017.’
