The Best Buy drama continues, now teetering on the possibility of a scandal. Former CEO Brian Dunn, who abruptly resigned from the helm of the electronic retail giant earlier this week, is reportedly being investigated under allegations that he used company resources to carry out an inappropriate relationship with a female employee, according to reports.
Best Buy is looking into "multiple complaints that Dunn behaved inappropriately with a female subordinate," according to the Star Tribune in Minneapolis. People close to the retailer were concerned that Dunnís behavior was threatening the company, according to Bloomberg, which cited an anonymous source.
The woman is "a 29-year old who worked in a leadership training institute at the company's Richfield, Minn., headquarters," according to the Wall Street Journal, which added that the retailer wouldn't disclose whether she was still employed by the company. The report said "a person close to her said the incidents that led to complaints to the board were 'something small that people blew out of proportion.'"
