Uber Fires 20 Employees After Sexual Harrassment Case

After an investigation into a sexual harassment case, Uber fired 20 employees on Tuesday at its San Francisco headquarters.


The story started back in February when a former engineer employee, Susan Fowler claimed she was sexually harassed by her supervisor, and the human resources department ignored her claims. At the same time, other employees reported similar systemic issues within Uber.

Uber hired former United States Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. to conduct an independent investigation into the claims. After the investigation, the findings would be presented to a group of Uber’s board members and a summary of the findings would be made public.
