According to a report by the Wall Street Journal Friday afternoon, citing people familiar with the matter, lawyers investigating outgoing Facebook (NASDAQ:) chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg’s use of corporate resources are scrutinizing behavior going back several years.

According to the article, they’re looking at the extent that staff members worked on the woman’s personal projects. Several employees were interviewed by Meta Platforms as part of their investigation. According to reports, the review began in fall.

This tech company is focused on what Facebook employees did for Sandberg’s Lean In foundation which supports women at work. The company is also looking into the promotion and writing her second book.

The Wall Street Journal reported that Meta had been investigating Sandberg’s use company resources for her wedding planning. However, this is only a part of what the Wall Street Journal has now confirmed.

Facebook’s COO Announced Last Week that she was leaving her position after 14 years. She will however continue to be on the board.

A spokeswoman for Sandberg told the WSJ last week: “Sheryl did not inappropriately use company resources in connection with the planning of her wedding.”
