The probe, which has been concluded, was first reported by the Information. The employee is no longer with the company but raised the complaint earlier this year.
“The Board takes any allegation of this type seriously,” a ViacomCBS spokesperson said in a statement. “An independent review of the alleged incident has concluded, and the investigation did not support the allegation.”
The complaint was made by a former Nickelodeon employee. She alleged that Bakish had touched her rear end at the party.
