Uber facing questions regarding workplace policies

Many people in New York use Uber or similar services to get to work or school. According to a report from the Wall Street Journal, the company is under investigation by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission for gender discrimination related to its hiring practices and pay policies. Uber says that it has taken steps to make sure that everyone is treated equally.

For instance, the company pointed to its inclusion reports and the fact that it made changes to its employee review system. It also claims that it relies on market data when determining how much to pay its workers. Uber says that its people are now paid based on job title and tenure regardless of their race or gender. The company's former CEO left the company in June, and he was pushed out in part because of a blog post asking for an investigation into the company's culture.

However, it was reported that the COO who was hired by the company's new CEO had acted in an insensitive manner toward women and minorities. The head of human resources resigned just days before the Wall Street Journal report came out. She was criticized for not properly responding to claims of racial discrimination within the company. There was no official word from the EEOC as to if an investigation against Uber is ongoing.

There are many ways in which gender discrimination may take place within an organization. For example, a woman may be paid less or a man may be asked to work different hours strictly because of an individual's gender. Those who believe that they have been treated differently in this manner may wish to consult with an attorney to see what recourse they might have.
