How do you deal with claims of sexual harassment? Have two law firms conduct investigations and fire 20 people. But will that be the end or the middle?
“Uber Fires Over 20 In Wake Of Probe,” The Wall Street Journal, June 7, 2017 B1. Over two hundred claims investigated and no action taken in 100 of them.
Were there supervisors who participated or condoned or who failed to notice or respond? Were there reporting practices and policies in place? If harassment was “accepted” in the Uber culture, who’s to blame? HR? The Board? Management? How long had this been going on? How much will the shareholders have to pay?
A summary of one of the law firm reports is due out soon.
