GM: Delayed Recalls Not Conspiracy, Cover-Up

By  | 

General Motors released its internal report Thursday about recalls of cars with faulty ignition switches.

Fifteen employees have been fired. Most are senior-level workers who "acted inappropriately" on the delayed recall of 2.6 million cars.

GM is starting a compensation fund for people who were hurt or lost family members because of the faulty part. It's been linked to 13 deaths.

CEO Mary Barra says the report finds the problem wasn't a conspiracy or cover-up but a misdiagnosis.

She says the company needs to set a new industry standard. Barra is encouraging workers to speak up if they see an issue.
