Uber Exploring “Abhorrent” Sexual Harassment Claims at Company

February 20th, 2017

Uber will be exploring a former employee’s claims of “abhorrent” sexual harassment from company personnel. The former employee of the ride-sharing service cited extensive harassment in a blog post after working at the company for a year. The post prompted Uber officials to investigate and address concerns regarding potential sexual misconduct, discrimination, and general disarray. On the first day of her job, the employee claims she was allegedly propositioned by her team manager and received inappropriate messages from him. Although she reported her co-worker’s behavior to human resources, they failed to address the complaints. When she and other employees banded together to file complaints with human resources, representatives claimed nothing had been reported before, and no other employees had anything incriminating to say about the manager, which caused them to give up the fight. Other workplace issues like fierce competition, boastful behavior, and failure to finish unreasonable projects affected the work environment as well. Due to the post, Uber’s CEO stated on social media that this behavior would not be tolerated, that it goes against the company’s credo, and that this was the first time he had heard of the misconduct.

No employee should have to deal with sexual harassment at a job. When harassment occurs at work, it can create a hostile environment for the employee, which may lead to mental trauma and an inability to accomplish work tasks. If their productivity level and enthusiasm deflates, they may even be in danger of losing their job.
