Jodie Fisher brought HP scandal to N.J.

Jodie Fisher brought HP scandal to N.J.

Jodie Fisher, the woman who brought sexual harassment charges against ex-Hewlett-Packard chief Mark Hurd that eventually led to his ouster, was hired by her mother to work at TeleSearch Staffing Solutions, a New Jersey staffing agency.

Fisher moved to New Jersey because she "needed work like a lot of people these days," her mother, Polly McDonald, founder and president of the agency, told The Wall Street Journal. She said her daughter sought her counsel on whether to proceed with sexual harassment allegations against former H-P Chief Executive Officer Mark Hurd "some months ago" and her mother urged her to go forward.

McDonald declined to discuss her daughter's relationship with Hurd or Fisher's work at H-P, saying she was included in a confidentiality agreement so she could discuss the matter with her daughter. Before he was asked to resign by H-P's board Friday, Hurd reached a private settlement with Fisher for an undisclosed amount.
