first_imgTuesday 10 August 2010 8:49 pm Oracle slams HP’s corporate correctness Share whatsapp Oracle boss Larry Ellison yesterday laid into Hewlett-Packard after its chief executive Mark Hurd was forced to resign following allegations by a former porn star.Ellison slammed HP’s board for ousting close friend Hurd despite clearing him of sexually harassing Jodie Fisher, star of movies including Sheer Passion and Intimate Obsession.Ellison said: “The HP board just made the worst personnel decision since the idiots on the Apple board fired Steve Jobs many years ago.“In losing Mark Hurd, the HP board failed to act in the best interest of HP’s employees, shareholders, customers and partners.“Publishing known false sexual harassment claims is not good corporate governance; it’s cowardly corporate political correctness.”Ellison said the HP board voted 6-to-4 to go public with the claims.HP, however, disputes this. A spokeswoman said: “As the company stated previously, the board voted unanimously for Hurd’s resignation.”Hurd quit over allegations he claimed $20,000 (£12,500) of false expenses, including payments to the steamy star for work she did not carry out, expensive meals and travel.
