According to a complaint filed in September with the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing, the answer is yes. A former worker claims he was fired for sticking up for other employees who were experiencing sexual harassment at the hands of a male supervisor.
The former employee stated that he raised the issue with Uber’s HR department several times, but the department didn’t investigate the allegations. Instead, he said he was told: “We get a lot of phone calls from employees that we don’t always act on.”
The employee claims he was subject to a retaliatory investigation and fired in March, 2016. The California agency reviewed and gave the employee permission to file a private suit.
