One of Lauer's accusers claimed that he sexually assaulted her in his office in 2001, the New York Times has reported. NBC swiftly terminated the star who had a multi-million dollar contract, and this week, the network released their investigation results that concluded no high-level executives knew about his behavior before November. The company didn't hire the outside firms to conduct the actual investigation. The complainant in the end agreed to be interviewed by Information HR and the identical senior NBCUniversal employment lawyer on November 27, 2017.

She didn't make a specific allegation about a specific female according to what the review found and, therefore, there was nothing there to follow up in that way.

"We were also unable to establish that any of those interviewed, including NBC News and Today Show leadership, News HR and others in positions of authority in the News Division, knew that Lauer had engaged in sexual activity with other employees", the report continued.

Within the wake of Lauer's firing, a number of insiders have instructed PEOPLE that Lauer was allegedly usually untrue to his spouse Annette Roque, whom he Wednesday in 1998 after assembly on a blind date.

The network launched an internal probe following Lauer's ouster, the findings of which were detailed on Wednesday. "A day later I took accountability, apologized to the individuals I had damage and promised to start the method of repairing the injury I had brought on my household". "If this investigation also promotes a safer work environment, then that is an added benefit for all". To critics, the button seemed an alarmingly useful tool for predatory behavior, but NBC said it is "a commonly available feature in executive offices" and does not lock the door from the inside. "I remained silent in an try to guard my household from additional embarrassment and to revive a small diploma of the privateness they've misplaced".

"But defending my family now requires me to speak up". I totally acknowledge that I acted inappropriately as a husband, father and principal at NBC.

These comments, she told the Times, she stands by completely.

The investigation additionally straight addressed claims that Lauer had engaged in sexual exercise with co-workers.

Some of the 68 people interviewed said they were aware of other rumored extramarital affairs in the news division.

Longtime rumors about Lauer's behavior became public knowledge during the wave of Me Too accusations against powerful men late a year ago. The report states four women accused Lauer of inappropriate sexual behavior that spanned decades. According to the report, the manager recalled the conversation, but stated that she did not recall reporting the interaction to anyone. Several women also credibly described to the investigation team being the subject of what they believed was a sexual overture from Lauer in which he complimented them on their appearance in sexually suggestive ways. But they also said Lauer didn't pursue them further after they ignored him, and so they didn't report his behavior to management.

The report discussed reasons why some at NBC are reluctant to come forward with complaints - including glass-walled Human Resources offices that made them question whether their concerns would be kept quiet.

Again in December, a At this time present supply instructed PEOPLE they have been shocked by the allegations - however not by rumors of extramarital affairs. "In all of the years I labored with him, I by no means noticed conduct like that or heard any experiences like that". Because of the investigation's findings.
