Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) has yet to decide whether venture capitalist Steve Jurvetson will remain on the board of directors after being investigated for sexual harassment in November, according to a report by Recode.

Keri Kukral, the founder of start-up Raw Science, posted on Facebook that “women approached by founding partners of Draper Fisher Jurvetson should be careful,” although she did not mention Jurvetson specifically.

The post prompted a company investigation into Jurvetson’s behavior that eventually led to his departure, but that investigation is now closed.

There may be an update on board members when Tesla files its proxy statement with the SEC.

Jurvetson sits on the board of two of CEO Elon Musk’s companies, Tesla and SpaceX, and is still listed as a director on Tesla’s site.

Shares of Tesla were up slightly to US$293.90 in Thursday afternoon trading.
