Microsoft Investigates Bill Gates

 Microsoft is reportedly investigating its founder, Bill Gates over allegations he attempted to have an intimate relationship with a female employee in 2000.

According to a BBC report, the company conducted the investigation before Gates resigned from the board last year.

A spokesman for Gates denied his decision to resign had anything to do with the investigation.

Reports of the investigation came after Gates and his wife, Melinda, announced their decision to divorce after 27 years of marriage.

Yesterday, a Microsoft spokesman said the company had received a complaint in late 2019 that Gates was trying to have an intimate relationship with the employee in question.

Adding to the report, Microsoft informed that it has conducted an investigation with the law firm and provided support to the employee who made the complaint.

“The board committee examined the complaint, assisted by a law firm to conduct a thorough investigation.

"Throughout the investigation, Microsoft provided unequivocal support to the employees who lodged the complaint," the spokesman said.

The Wall Street Journal through its report last Sunday, citing a statement from Microsoft's board of directors, the company has decided Gates' behavior is inappropriate and he should resign.
