H-P/Hurd story updated with comments from H-P's board and interim CEO Cathie Lesjak.
In a statement, H-P explained that Hurd's decision was made following an investigation by outside legal counsel and the General Counsel's Office, overseen by the Board. This was related to a claim of sexual harassment against Hurd and H-P by a former contractor to H-P, it said.
"The investigation determined there was no violation of H-P's sexual harassment policy, but did find violations of H-P's standards of business conduct," explained H-P.
