A TECH tycoon sexually assaulted two female employees and organised business meetings in hot tubs and steam rooms, it was claimed.

Lawrence Jones, 51, who is worth around £700million, was a guest at Prince Harry and Meghan’s wedding in May 2018.

The dad-of-four was allegedly inappropriately physical with employees — often young women working as PAs or receptionists.

Staff claim it included tickling, hugging, stroking around the waist, or patting on the bottom.

One worker, aged 20 when recruited, claimed Jones took her to an adult shop, thrust a sex toy in her face then asked her to gift wrap a sex swing and lingerie.

Another said Jones, known as Loz or LJ, spilt a glass of water on her lap and asked: “Am I making you wet?”

Jones was recently listed among the UK’s 250 richest and his cloud computing company UKFast named one of Britain’s top ten places to work.

He has holidays with Sir Richard Branson, was photographed arm-in-arm with Boris Johnson at the Conservative conference and has donated £100,000 to the Tories since 2017.

One male ex-worker, who called the firm “misogynistic”, said: “He would be encouraging people to sit on his knee or cuddle up next to him.”

One alleged victim said she was molested by Jones at Sir Richard’s luxury Swiss chalet, The Lodge.

Another said bowls of condoms were dotted around the Christmas party, the Financial Times reports.

Jones categorically denies claims of any unlawful behaviour and declared they are wholly untrue, adding they are “hurtful and damaging”.
