PURCHASE, NY, December 5, 2018 – Teladoc Health (NYSE: TDOC), the global leader in virtual care, is issuing the following statement in response to a report published today referencing an incident from 2016.
We take workplace conduct matters very seriously. The SIRF report contains several factual inaccuracies. When we were made aware of the allegations against Mark Hirschhorn in 2016, we engaged an outside law firm to investigate the claims. That investigation found violations solely of our workplace relationship policy, and our board of directors took swift and appropriate disciplinary action to address the violations. This matter was handled in a prompt, thorough and fair manner. We are deeply committed to ensuring a safe, respectful work environment where all individuals are treated fairly and equally.
