Television mail order network QVC said Wednesday that it has finished an investigation into alleged irregularities in 401k withdrawals by employees at its Rocky Mount distribution center, but declined to say if the accusations were confirmed, or of any employees were fired.Eyewitness News first learned of the investigation August 5 when dozens of employees were locked out of the Rocky Mount facility.

They said they were told they were being investigated for falsifying documents to get early withdrawals from their 401k retirement plans.

QVC says the affected employees were allowed to meet with investigators and respond to the allegations.

"Out of continued respect for all of our employees, the specifics and results of the investigation and the individual meetings with employees will remain personal and confidential," said a QVC spokesperson.
