Boeing fired a small number of employees earlier this week for sexting at work, according to a person with knowledge of the details.

The person said “less than a dozen” people were involved, none of them executives or high-ranking managers. The investigation into the incident is now closed, the person said.

Boeing in a statement confirmed the company “has taken disciplinary action, including dismissal, against a small number of employees for inappropriate personal behavior.”

“The actions of a few in no way represent our thousands of employees,” the statement added.

The company declined further comment.
