Jason Mojica, head of Vice Media's documentary films unit, has been put on leave as the company looks into his interactions with an employee who alleges she was sexually harassed, Variety has confirmed.

In the article, former employee Phoebe Barghouty alleged that Mojica, who was editor-in-chief of Vice News at the time, would talk about sex in front of her, invite her to his house where he would be waiting shirtless, and touch her back and thigh "in ways that he didn't touch the other employees".

Vice responded to the report by saying that it would open an investigation into the allegations. "We do not tolerate harassment, abusive behavior, assault or retaliation and we will discipline anyone who engages in such conduct through a range of actions, including termination, as appropriate", a company spokesman said in a statement on Wednesday.

"A person familiar with the matter said that Mojica was suspended pending the outcome into an investigation of sexual misconduct between two former employees, first documented by the Daily Beast earlier this week", said The Wrap. According to Barghouty he asked how flexible she was after asking if she signed the non-traditional non-disclosure agreement, something that Waypoint reproached Vice for using as a means of leverage against employees. She also said that she told Mojica about Larsen's behavior, including inappropriate touching, and that he was flippant in his response.
