< Strong>14 women openly complained against Uber
In April, 14 women claimed to have been sexually assaulted or harassed by Uber drivers. They posted an open letter to Uber's board asking Uber to allow them to sue in the court, where they described the process of being beaten, stroked, or even sexually abused by Uber drivers.
The reason these women are Uber is required to allow them to sue in the law because in the Uber terms, whenever you sign up for the Uber app, you have agreed to agree to arbitrate privately on possible disputes. And according to Uber's user agreement, these women have virtually no voice.
A stone provokes a thousand layers of waves. This overlord clause directly makes Uber notorious. Western society began to attack Uber violently, just as it did before and after. However, it was not until May 15 that Uber announced the abolition of mandatory arbitration clauses, allowing victims of sexual harassment to use public prosecution and other means to resolve their allegations.
Benefit from this Uber became the second large technology company in the United States to abolish mandatory arbitration clauses (the first one was Microsoft) and it was ironic. However, when you are in trouble, you will never be the one who has fallen into trouble. Within hours of Uber's announcement, Lyft was Uber’s competitor.The trick was to catch the yellow tits. He also announced that he targeted victims of sexual harassment and abolished corresponding mandatory arbitration clauses. This gives Uber a knife, it can be said to be very embarrassing.
What is compulsory arbitration?
Compulsory arbitration refers to a statutory ruling made by a government agency or a specific agency on a unilateral basis. The outcome of the award must be controversial. Accepted by both parties. Because it violates the voluntary nature of arbitration, it is generally regarded as a misrepresentation of compulsory mediation and is a pseudo-arbitration.
It is precisely because of the mandatory Punching is a pseudo-arbitration, so it has detonated the wrath of Western society. However, Western legal experts expressed certain recognition for Uber's statement. He said: Uber's move is correct, but it does not solve the class action issue. A lawyer who had dealt with a case concerning sexual harassment against Uber, Jenny Christensen also thinks so.
It seems that Uber’s image restoration project can only be said to temporarily wipe his face. Layers of gold, the wind has still exposed a full of acne cheeks. In the face of incidents such as sexual harassment and sexual assault, Uber also faced the public with a sincere attitude. After all, DJ travels with its competitors have already delivered a tragic answer.
