Two days later, a company insider posted a "confession" to the social network Whisper asserting that the reasons for Charney's dismissal were "purely financial ... Everything else is bullshit. The board has nothing new." BuzzFeed got in touch with the poster through Whisper and was able to obtain the board's dismissal letter to Charney. It repeated the board's earlier allegation that he had allowed a subordinate to pose as Morales on a blog and make sexually provocative posts to him, which had apparently led to major punitive damages awarded to Morales by the arbitrator, calling this a breach of his fiduciary duty . Further in that vein, the board said, it had learned of an attempt to possibly suborn perjury in a "pending litigation matter". The letter also charged Charney with misusing corporate assets for personal gain, such as paying lucrative severance packages , bonuses and salary increases in exchange for silence from putative accusers as well as using corporate apartments himself and buying travel for family members with company funds, violating company policy by refusing to attend mandatory sexual harassment training sessions and disrupting them when others attended. 
As you go through this process, remember that compensation is not created equally amongst organizations. One organization’s values may differ from another or their compensation strategy may be completely different. A manufacturer may have many employees primarily paid with base pay as opposed to a car dealership which may have mostly commission employees. Both organizations’ compensation philosophies and policy statements will likely be different, but one thing that these two organizations will have in common is that their compensation policies are up-to-date and written down. That’s where you want to be.
