Uber Promises Safer Service By Firing 20 Employees

Uber Promises Safer Service By Firing 20 Employees

The executive, Eric Alexander, not only obtained the medical records of the victim, who was an Uber customer in India, but shared them with other executives, according to Recode, which first reported his firing.

Despite Uber's top executives allegedly knowing Alexander had obtained the rape victim's medical records, he remained employed by the company for the last three years. Alexander declined to comment, as did Kalanick and Michael through a spokesman. The driver was later sentenced to life in prison. Uber fired Alexander on Tuesday over the medical records issue, the New York Times reported.

Still, the incident was a dark stain on Uber's reputation in India, and perhaps more broadly in Asia.

However, Recode reports that Alexander was not among the 20 terminated employees, suggesting that he left the company only after the publication raised questions about his involvement in the rape case.

Classic Empire had arrived at the track on Tuesday but after one night in New York Casse said "his foot is bugging him again". So an argument can still be made that Classic Empire , the 2-year-old champion, has been the best 3-year-old in 2017.

Uber fired the staff following a report by law firm Perkins Coie, which Uber hired to look into claims of harassment, discrimination, bullying and other employee concerns.

After the India driver's conviction in 2015, the head of Uber's India business, Amit Jain, said in a statement: "Sexual assault is a bad crime, and we're pleased he has now been brought to justice".

But the ride-sharing service was consequently banned from operating in Delhi (the ban was lifted in June 2015).

Holder has reportedly made recommendations based on the results of the Perkins Coie investigation, and Uber plans to announce further actions based on his recommendations in the coming days. "It is also not clear if he obtained these files legally", she continues.

It said as well as Mr Kalanick, the records were seen by the company's senior vice president, Emil Michael.

According to the company, Uber India has about 400,000 drivers in 29 cities, across the country. Aiming to wrest control of India's booming taxi market, two cab-hailing smartphone apps, Uber and Ola, are promising hundreds of millions in new investments while also facing off with one another in court.

New cars come equipped with safety systems.

Other employees were uncomfortable with the trio obtaining and questioning the medical report, and Alexander's copy of the document was destroyed nearly a year later. It's the No. 1 ride-hailing company in the USA and is valued at almost $70 billion.
