CBS announced Monday that former CEO Les Moonves will not receive his $120 million severance package after the board of directors concluded he violated company policy and was uncooperative with an investigation into sexual misconduct allegations.Attorney Gloria Allred, who represents four women who have accused Moonves of misconduct, called on CBS to publicly release the details of the investigators' findings and compensate those with provable misconduct claims.Three major figures at CBS have lost their jobs over misconduct allegations: Moonves, "60 Minutes" top executive Jeff Fager, and news anchor Charlie Rose.CBS declined to comment beyond its statement.Last week, the CBS revealed a list of 18 women's rights organizations that would receive $20 million donations with funds the company had previously said would be deducted from Moonves' severance.The groups, which included Time's Up, praised the donations but called on CBS to publicly disclose the results of the Moonves investigation. Some activists involved in the #MeToo movement have praised CBS for hiring outside legal firms to conduct the investigation, a decision that contrasted with NBC's handling of sexual misconduct allegations against Matt Lauer, who was fired last year as host of the "Today" show host.
