In the midst of investigation into workplace behaviour, CBI boss Danker “steps down”

Due to charges of impropriety, Tony Danker, the director general of the CBI, has resigned from his position.

According to the Guardian, which first reported the story just before noon on Monday, March 6, the body has hired Fox Williams attorney Joanna Chatterton, an expert in employment law, to head an investigation into Danker’s behaviour at work.

A female staff member is believed to have filed a formal complaint against Danker in January, alleging that the CBI director had made “unwanted verbal contact” that she “thought to be sexual harassment.”

The CBI president Brian McBride later stated that the complaint “was reviewed carefully and was dealt with exhaustively” notwithstanding the organization’s decision not to initiate a disciplinary procedure at the time.

But, following the discovery of more allegations, the body has now opened a formal investigation into Danker’s actions.

The CBI “always strive[s] for the highest standards,” Danker, who took over as director general in 2020, said in a statement. He also pledged to “cooperate completely” with the probe.

It has been embarrassing to learn that I have upset or worried any of my coworkers, he remarked. I sincerely apologise; it was wholly unintended. I’m honoured to serve as the head of the CBI, the employers’ organisation. The finest standards are what we constantly aim towards. I thus concur with our choice to independently evaluate any fresh accusations. And I’ve made the decision to withdraw while the review is underway and will completely comply with it. According to reports, several CBI employees expressed concern that Danker had accessed their coworkers’ personal Instagram accounts.
