Ford executive leaves over inappropriate behaviour

The head of Ford's US operations is leaving the company immediately following an internal investigation into inappropriate behaviour. Ford President and Chief Executive Jim Hackett said in a statement: "We made this decision after a thorough review and careful consideration. Ford is deeply committed to providing and nurturing a safe and respectful culture and we expect our leaders to fully uphold these values." In August, Ford agreed a multi-million-dollar settlement after an investigation into sex and race harassment at two factories in Chicago. In an open letter about the matter, Mr Hackett wrote "There is absolutely no room for harassment at Ford Motor Company.... We don't want you here, and we will move you out for engaging in any behaviour like this."
