The publishing company has made the decision in the wake of multiple allegations of sexual misconduct against disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, co-founder of The Weinstein Company as well as its Weinstein Books imprint. The Weinstein Co. dismissed Weinstein on Sunday.

Books that are now under contract will be published by the company's Hachette Books imprint, and people working at Weinstein Books will join the Hachette imprint, according to Michael Pietsch, the chief executive of Hachette Book Group.

Hachette Book Group has terminated its Weinstein Books imprint effective immediately, with Weinstein titles now to be published under the Hachette Books imprint, Deadline has confirmed.

The imprint, which was originally called Miramax Books, was founded in 2001 by Bob and Harvey Weinstein.

Numerous actresses have shared stories about Weinstein allegedly victimizing them, including Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie, Asia Argento, Rose McGowan, Rosanna Arquette, Jessica Barth, Emma de Caunes, Cara Delevigne, Ambra Battilana Gutierrez, Ashley Judd, Heather Graham and Mira Sorvino.
