Meta’s lawyers are investigating outgoing COO Sheryl Sandberg amid claims she misused company resources, The Wall Street Journal reported.
Several employees have been interviewed in connection with the investigation by Facebook-parent Meta, the WSJ reported. The probe has been progress since last fall.
According to an earlier report by WSJ on her eve of her departure, the company was also examining whether she had improperly used company resources in planning her upcoming wedding.
