The CBI, one of the UK’s largest business groups, has removed its boss Tony Danker from his position with immediate effect. This follows an investigation into complaints about his conduct at work involving a female employee. Three other CBI employees have also been suspended pending further investigation into a number of ongoing allegations. The CBI has stated that it is liaising with the police and is willing to cooperate with any police investigations.

Mr Danker has previously apologized for any offense he may have caused, however, since then fresh sexual misconduct claims have emerged against CBI employees, including an allegation of rape at a summer boat party in 2019. This has prompted the CBI to postpone its events and the Treasury to cut ties.

Rain Newton-Smith has been appointed as the new head of the CBI. She is a former chief economist at the CBI and has held a number of senior roles at the organisation. She will now take on the responsibility of leading the CBI in the wake of these allegations and ensuring that the organisation is a safe and respectful workplace for all its employees.

The CBI has said that it is taking these allegations very seriously and is committed to ensuring that all its employees feel safe and respected in the workplace. It has also stated that it will be taking steps to ensure that such allegations are investigated thoroughly and that any perpetrators are held accountable.

The CBI is an important organisation in the UK and these allegations have caused shockwaves throughout the business community. It is essential that the CBI takes all necessary steps to ensure that such incidents do not occur again and that it is a safe and respectful workplace for all its employees.
