In a brief phone interview with the AP, Howard characterized the ex-employees' claims as "baseless."

The company’s lawyer, Cam Stracher, told the AP that the firm had hired an outside team to investigate the claims but it was ultimately decided that the behavior didn’t warrant firing Howard.

"It was determined that there was some what you would call as horsing around outside the office, going to bars and things that are not uncommon in the media business," Stracher said.

The investigators also confirmed that they’d filed the report.

Howard quit soon after the report was completed, but the company rehired him one year later with a promotion that landed him in the company's main office in New York.

Stracher said Howard was “cautioned when he returned that” the behavior described “as horsing around was not appropriate,” he said.
