Fashion chain Ted Baker’s chief executive Ray Kelvin is to take a voluntary leave of absence amid allegations of harassment.
Last week, an online petition launched by employees accused 62-year-old Mr Kelvin of inappropriate comments and behaviour, including “forced hugging”.
Ted Baker said it had appointed a law firm to conduct an independent external investigation into the allegations.
Chief operating officer Lindsay Page has been named acting chief executive.
