Photo Harold Ford Jr., a former congressman, was sacked from his position as a managing director at the financial services firm Morgan Stanley for what the company described as behavior "inconsistent with our values".
The news of Ford's departure was first reported by the Huffington Post, which cited interviews with an unnamed woman who claimed Ford harassed her on a night several years ago.
Harold Ford Jr. has reportedly been fired from Morgan Stanley over allegations of misconduct.
The woman, who declined to be identified, was not a Morgan Stanley employee at the time of the alleged incident but interacted professionally with Ford on a regular basis.
Ford denied the accusation and said that he would "be bringing legal action" against the accuser as well as Morgan Stanley. Ford continued to contact her after the encounter until she wrote an email asking him to cease contact. His firing comes as dozens of other powerful men in media, politics and showbiz face an avalanche of sexual harassment allegations. He also said he intends to file a lawsuit against Morgan Stanley over his "improper termination" and separately sue a HuffPost reporter over "these false claims".
Ford Jr. spent 10 years in Congress from 1997 to 2007, taking over the Tennessee district formerly held by his father.
Mr. Ford joined Morgan Stanley in 2011 as a senior adviser, a role that typically involves communicating with clients and appearing at firm events.
MSNBC announced that contributor Harold Ford Jr. will not be allowed on the network during an investigation of misconduct accusations.
