Uber board to consider management changes

Uber board to consider management changes

The company is also dealing with a Justice Department investigations into tools that it used to evade law enforcement personnel in cities where the authorities were trying to shut down its ride-hailing service.

Michael's fate at the company was said to be one subject of debate during a board meeting Sunday that lasted about seven hours.

In total, 215 claims of harassment were investigated by the legal firm Perkins Coie LLP and, while 100 cases have now been dropped, a further 57 are still under investigation.

On Tuesday, Uber responded to that report's findings by saying the company had fired 20 employees for a variety of reasons, and was increasing training and adopting new policies. Following this Uber board member Arianna Huffington said Kalanick needed to change his leadership style from "scrappy entrepreneur" to a "leader of a major global company".

Sunday's board meeting comes shortly after personal tragedy in Kalanick's life.

The company has said that all recommendations from Holder's investigation are to be implemented.

Today's match was a one-sided affair, with Pakistan outperforming India in all three departments. Zaman's figures of 3.3-0-25-0 were ruined only by Hardik Pandya hitting two consecutive sixes.

Emil Michael, Uber's senior vice president for business and the company's second in command, is leaving Uber.

The review was instigated in February after former Uber engineer Susan Fowler made claims of sexual harassment. Uber also faces a mass exodus of senior executives, a toxic culture about to be laid bare and a business model based on inventing the future. Michael's sudden departure came after a series of sexual harassment scandals circled the company over the past year, forcing the board of directors to call an internal investigation.

Uber's image, culture and practices have been largely defined by Kalanick's brash approach, company insiders and investors previously told Reuters. Eric Alexander, who oversaw business in Asia, departed amid reports of the India rape controversy last week.

Uber is also embroiled in a legal battle with Alphabet's self-driving vehicle subsidiary, Waymo, who alleges that Uber stole important documents on self-driving auto technology and faces a criminal probe for "Greyball" technology it used to mislead regulators in cities it operated in. Now, the board of directors has to make a decision on how to responsibly manage the structure of a company that's privately valued at nearly $US70 ($93) billion.

Kalanick has contributed to Uber's recent woes, losing his temper earlier this year in a profanity-laced argument with an Uber driver over pay.
