An explosive new report threatens a hefty severance payment for former CBS CEO Les Moonves, who is now accused of having an employee “on call” to perform oral sex on him and lying to CBS investigators.

Moonves resigned in September after at least a dozen women said Moonves had subjected them to harassment, had forced them to perform oral sex on him, exposed himself, and used physical violence and intimidation against them.

CBS’s board of directors began investigating the allegations after initial reports, but there was a possibility Moonves could still walk away with settlement exceeding $100 million. That payout seems increasingly unlikely after The New York Times reported that Moonves attempted to silence his accusers, destroyed evidence, and lied to investigators.

The new allegations are all detailed in a 59-page draft report by investigators, who are attempting to show that Moonves violated the terms of his employment agreement, allowing CBS to fire him for cause and withhold a large severance payment.

“Based on the facts developed to date, we believe that the board would have multiple bases upon which to conclude that the company was entitled to terminate Moonves for cause,” the report says.

When talking to Moonves about the allegations, investigators say they found him to be “evasive and untruthful at times and to have deliberately lied about and minimized the extent of his sexual misconduct.”

In the course of their probe, investigators also learned of additional allegations against Moonves, pushing the total of accusers up to 17. In addition to engaging in “transactional” sex that would violate the company’s sexual harassment policy, Moonves allegedly had an employee “who was ‘on call’ to perform oral sex.”

“A number of employees were aware of this and believed that the woman was protected from discipline or termination as a result of it,” the report alleges.

The investigators’ report also alleges that at least one CBS board member and communications head Gil Schwartz mishandled sexual misconduct allegations. A now-deceased CBS board member is said to have known about at least one allegation against Moonves, but declined to tell other board members and publicly defended Moonves. Meanwhile, Schwartz apparently learned about an allegation in late 2017 and drafted a resignation letter for Moonves that was never signed.

Moonves denies having any non-consensual sexual encounters. CBS declined to comment to the NYT.

The draft report was created by investigators in November and could still be edited before it is presented to the CBS board next week.

“No findings have been reported to the board. The board has reached no conclusions on this matter,” a spokesman for the investigators said in a statement Tuesday. “The investigators and the board are committed to a thorough and fair process.”

    What does it mean, being on call? Did these women not have enough self respect to tell him to piss off and leave the company? This is what makes me upset with the #me too movement. The women go along with things for years, for a job, then only complain with it comes to light. Are they not partly responsible for their actions? I believe so, they were not tied up and unable to walk away.

      I left several jobs to get away from idiots I couldn’t tolerate. These women made the choice to stay. In some ways it’s “easier” to just allow nasty behavior rather than go through the hassle of job search & interviews on top of the job, sometimes for months. As nasty as this guy is, he did not kidnap them & tie them to a post. Any number of them could have found a new job & then brought charges against him.

    On call…….you have got to be kidding me. This woman stayed in this job for years giving this loser BJ’s and now wants sympathy. Jesus, this Me Too movement is one holy freaking mess. I feel ABSOLUTELY NO EMPATHY for anyone who would do this for a job or money. Whatever you get is too good for your lazy azz as far as I’m concerned. You sold your soul, now you live with the chaos and shame and consequences. You women are something else……you have set all the work us old women did back 50 years. I’m appalled my granddaughter’s will have to follow all your BS and pink hats and basically start all over again using hard work, long hours, education, training, fortitude while being expected to follow in your footsteps of sexual favors for a job. You all disgust me.

      Agreed. But the Left has twisted everything. Total “Doublethink” and “Newspeak.” It will be worse for your daughters if the Left ever gets control again, though; as Hillary, Bernie, or any of the rest. They would have signed the UN’s Mandate for regular Global Migration to be signed Dec 10, allowing billions of Mus lims the “human right” to “migrate” to any country that signs.

      BareNakedIs lam has info if you search “pact.” While you’re there, search “shahada school.”
