Uber's board votes unanimously to adopt all recommendations of Holder report
Jun 12, 2017, 14:31
Uber hired Holder and his law firm Covington & Burling in February after a former employee of the company, Susan Fowler, published a blog post alleging she had experienced sexual harassment at the company and that its human resources department had tried to cover it up.
What exactly the report contains however, is unclear but won't be for long as TechCrunch reports the recommendations made by Holder will be handed to employees on Tuesday. As Reuters reports via a source "familiar with the situation", among the items on the agenda is a vote of confidence, of sorts, for CEO Travis Kalanick, with the result possibly being a leave of absence and/or a change in his role at the embattled company.
A source raised the prospect that Kalanick could take time off while sweeping changes to management practices were made.
Under Kalanick, Uber has shaken up the taxi industry in hundreds of cities and turned the San Francisco-based company into the world's most valuable startup.
At a staff meeting that day, employees were notified that more than 200 harassment and discrimination claims had been investigated in a separate, parallel investigation by law firm Perkins Coie.
Uber took a step towards reforming its controversial culture on Sunday. The board will also be discussing CEO Travis Kalanick leave of absence from the ride-hailing start up. Michael was in attendance at the escort-karaoke bar in Seoul, where Uber employees allegedly picked women from a line.
Inside Uber, some doubt the company's ability to change with Kalanick and Michael, his right-hand man, in charge, according to one former employee.
