“The Ellen DeGeneres Show” has become the subject of an internal investigation by Warner Bros following numerous complaints about workplace problems.
According to Variety, a memo was emailed to employees of The Show last week, which stated Warner Bros. will be interviewing current and former staffers about their experience on the set of the talk show, hosted by Ellen DeGeneres.
According to the report, interviews will be conducted by Warner Media’s employee relations group and a third party firm.
This memo comes after the recent allegations about toxic working conditions by current and former staffers of the Television show
Earlier this month, BuzzFeed News published accounts from one current staffer and 10 former staffers who anonymously claimed they were subjected to a “toxic work environment.”
Some workers alleged they were fired after taking medical leave and were subjected to favoritism by executive producers.
In all of these though, Ellen DeGeneres herself was never accused of any of the alleged misconduct even though one anonymous worker stated;
“I think the executive producers surround her and tell her, ‘Things are going great, everybody’s happy,’ and she just believes that, but it’s her responsibility to go beyond that.”
