The transport firm’s head of human resources, Liane Hornsey, resigned this week following a discrimination probe
Allegations against Uber Technology’s head of human resources, Liane Hornsey, were investigated “appropriately”, the company has said, following Hornsey’s resignation this week.
Hornsey is the latest to leave Uber under chief executive Dara Khosrowshahi, who replaced Travis Kalanick in August of last year following a series of scandals.
An anonymous group of whistleblowers had accused her of systematically dismissing internal complaints of racial discrimination and of using derogatory language about two other Uber executives.
Hornsey left shortly after Reuters contacted Uber about an investigation into the matter by the company’s legal firm, Gibson Dunn.
The allegations only became known publicly after her departure.
