Vice Media fires three employees over inappropriate behavior

Vice Media confirmed that it has fired three employees for violating workplace policies – most notably, sexual and verbal harassment. The terminations were first reported by CNN. Vice hasn’t named the three employees. The past few weeks haven’t been kind to Vice. Its latest actions came weeks after a damning Daily Beast report, in which the company was described as fostering a “toxic” environment, particularly when it came to abusive behavior toward female employees. Jason Mojica, the head of Vice’s documentary films division, was suspended last month following allegations of inappropriate behavior. Kaj Larsen, the former L.A. bureau chief of Vice News, was also accused of inappropriate conduct. Vice says it has been investigating the claims.
