Tucker service, the restaurant chain owned by Fox News, has announced CEO Joe Dvorak has resigned.
The news was first reported by The New York Times.
Tucker announced Tuesday afternoon that Dvoragak will be stepping down from his post.
He was named CEO of the company in 2016.
“Tucker has been a valued member of our team, and we are deeply saddened by the news that Joe will be departing,” Tucker’s general manager Kevin McNeil said in a statement.
“He has done an outstanding job as CEO, and our team will continue to work with him on the long-term future of the business.”
In January, The New Yorker revealed that Durden had a relationship with a woman who had been working at Tucker for several years.
She said she felt pressured to have sex with Durden, and that Doragak’s response to her allegations was not “tolerable.”
She said that Doricak retaliated against her by firing her.
In a statement, Tucker said, “The company is in the process of gathering facts to determine what happened, and in the meantime, we offer our deepest apologies to the many women who were impacted by this troubling incident.
We are cooperating with the authorities and will cooperate fully with the investigation.”
In a Facebook post on Wednesday, Dvoracak said that he was stepping down to “focus on my family and personal life.”
Tucker said that it has been working with the government on a criminal investigation, and said that “we are committed to providing a safe and secure workplace for our employees.”
It was not immediately clear what role Tucker had in Tucker’s business.
Dvoras statement said that, “I am committed to ensuring that the Tucker brand is the best it can be for all of our guests and employees.”
The news comes just days after the New Yorker published an account of an encounter between Durden and an employee, who said she was forced to have anal sex with him after he asked for directions.
Durden has been under investigation since the scandal broke in May.
Tucker said Tuesday that Dormagak was “aware of the ongoing investigation.”
Dvoraks resignation comes at a time when Tucker has struggled with a reputation as a sexual harassment and workplace discrimination hot spot.
In April, the company said it had terminated a former employee who had worked at the company for three years.
The New Republic reported that the former employee, whose name was not released, said that she was fired for making inappropriate comments about Durden.
The former employee was fired after her termination in February.
She filed a grievance with the company and received an apology from Durden in May, according to the New Republic.
The company said at the time that it was taking “appropriate action” in response to the complaint.
Tucker has not been accused of any wrongdoing.
