Uber Employee Got Accused for Abhorrent Sexual Harassment

Susan Fowler, a former Uber Engineer posted a blog where she mentioned about the occurrence took place against her will.

While defending Uber, Travis Kalanick gave a statement, “What she describes is abhorrent and against everything Uber stands for and believes in. Anyone who behaves this way or thinks this is OK will be fired.”

To make her accusation more distinguished she also mentioned, “He was trying to stay out of trouble at work, he said, but he couldn’t help getting in trouble, because he was looking for women to have sex with.” Another sad part was when she made a report to the Human Resources, she was told that no further action would be taken as it was a “first offense”. Not only that, she was also advised to join an alternative team at the company. One more shocking fact she shared about the number of female engineers at the company has plunged over the years, which BBC has been unable to verify. There were several instances where she felt poorly treated.

Unlike Google, Apple, Facebook and others, Uber chooses not to disclose figures about diversity at the company.

Yesterday, 19th February in the evening, Mr Kalanick responded to the allegations saying, “I have just read Susan Fowler’s blog.

“It’s the first time this has come to my attention so I have instructed Liane Hornsey, our new Chief Human Resources Officer, to conduct an urgent investigation into these allegations.

“We seek to make Uber a just workplace and there can be absolutely no place for this kind of behavior at Uber.”

The BBC has reached out to several high-profile Uber investors for comment.
