Les Moonves lied to CBS about his sexual misconduct claims and now he won’t be getting the $120 million severance payout he thought he was.
The Board just said, “We have determined that there are grounds to terminate for cause, including his willful and material misfeasance, violation of Company policies and breach of his employment contract, as well as his willful failure to cooperate fully with the Company’s investigation.”
The Board went on to say, “Mr. Moonves will not receive any severance payment from the Company.”
Twelve women accused Moonves of various forms of sexual misconduct, including engaging in forced oral sex in his office in a 1995 meeting. Another woman claims she was “on call”for oral sex as part of her job.
Moonves has maintained any sexual encounter was consensual.
