Washington, Aug 9: The woman, who earlier raised the sexual harassment charge against former HP chief Mark Hurd, said on Monday, Aug 9 that both the party had resolved the case with mutual understanding.

Employed with HP, the woman Fisher said that she was "surprised and saddened" that Hurd lost his job.

She said she met Hurd when she interviewed for a contractor position at the company in 2007.

She worked as a marketing contractor there from 2007 to 2009 but they didn't have any sexual relationship.

Hurd resigned Friday, Aug 6, following an investigation by HP's board.

Although he hasn't violated the company's sexual harassment policies, he is accused of falsifying expense reports to conceal the nature of his relationship with Fisher.

However, on Sunday, Aug 8, HP's executive team said, "a lot has happened in the last 48 hours. The executive team is focused on running the business now."
