The progressive radio station, BFM, has fired two of its employees after a graphic accusation letter alleging sexual harassment went viral. The company’s stakeholders mutually decided upon the decision based on sufficient evidence that was gathered.
BFM Founder, Malek Ali issued a release that the company’s management team acknowledges that they could have been more proactive and timely with their investigation into the sexual harassment claim. As a result, the company is planning to revamp its internal grievance processes by instituting training and sexual harassment awareness programs.
The incident occurred at an office party in 2017, where the two former male staff members were accused of sexually harassing female colleagues with sexual propositions and comments on the way they dressed. This led to the complaint being filed and the company launching an inquiry with independent counsel to probe the filing.
