After Hayes' case was filed, additional employees came forward with other allegations of sexually inappropriate behavior toward employees. In one complaint, Barr was accused of calling a male subordinate "sexy" and asking a personal question about his anatomy at an office party. A different complaint alleged that she offered to perform an oral sex act on a male subordinate during a work trip to Bogota, Colombia.

Barr went on leave in August after a newspaper story was published about the case and resigned in September. In her resignation letter to ICE Director John Morton, Barr said she has been the subject of "unfounded allegations designed to destroy my reputation" and was resigning "with great regret."
