Uber Paying Out $2 Million For Sexual-Harassment Claims

Posted by at 10:47 am on August 22, 2018

Uber is close to settling a $1.9 million payout to 56 current and former workers who say they were victims of sexual harassment—an average of around $34,000 each.

Additionally, those workers and 431 other female and minority engineers will receive an average of just under $11,000 for alleged pay disparities. The figures come from the final accounting in the settlement of the case that was submitted Monday to a federal judge in Oakland, California.

The class-action suit is being led by two Latina engineers who allege they were paid less than their white, Asian, and male colleagues.

In a statement, Uber said that the amounts it would have to pay out were “fair, reasonable, and adequate.” A lawyer who negotiated the settlement on behalf of the employees said his legal firm was “happy that the settlement approval process is progressing as planned.
