An executive at Google's parent company Alphabet resigned Tuesday after reports of sexual harassment.

Rich DeVaul, a director at Alphabet's research lab X, left the company without receiving an exit package, Axios reported.

DeVaul was one of several Google and Alphabet employees named in a New York Times article last week, highlighting sexual harassment in the workplace by executives.

The article states DeVaul told a woman interviewing for a job as a hardware engineer at X that he and his wife were polyamorous and invited her to the Burning Man festival in Nevada.

DeVaul didn't deny the report and issued a statement to the New York Times apologizing for an "error of judgment."

Alphabet told the New York Times it took "appropriate corrective actions" after receiving the complaint against DeVaul, who had been at the company for more than seven years.

Following the release of the New York Times story, Google CEO Sundar Pichai sent an email to employees announcing the company had fired 48 people over the past two years for sexual harassment, including 13 who were "senior managers and above," who were dismissed without an exit package.
