Uber Takes PREEMPTive Action to Thwart Susan Fowler Sexual Harassment Allegations! Hires former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder to investigate alleged claims!
Recently a former Uber Engineer, Susan Fowler has claimed in a blog post that she was subjected to sexual harassment while employed at Uber. According to Ms. Fowler, “on my first official day rotating on the team, my new manager sent me a string of messages over company chat. He was in an open relationship, he said, and his girlfriend was having an easy time finding new partners but he wasn’t. He was trying to stay out of trouble at work, he said, but he couldn’t help getting in trouble, because he was looking for women to have sex with. It was clear that he was trying to get me to have sex with him, and it was so clearly out of line that I immediately took screenshots of these chat messages and reported him to HR.”
