Uber accused of ignoring rampant sexual harassment; CEO calls for investigation

Uber Technologies Inc. Chief Executive Travis Kalanick called for an investigation Sunday into allegations of sexual harassment, bias and mismanagement at the company after a former employee wrote a scathing blog post about her experiences there.

Susan Fowler, who said she started working at Uber in late 2015 as a site reliability engineer, claimed her male supervisor made sexual advances toward her via company chat on her first day on his team. “It was so clearly out of line that I immediately took screenshots of these chat messages and reported him to HR,” she said, but was told he would not be punished because he was a “high performer” and that was the first complaint against him.
