Default Lawsuit Alleges Uber Uses ‘Biased’ Rider Ratings to Fire Drivers

Lawsuit Alleges Uber Uses ‘Biased’ Rider Ratings to Fire Drivers

October 27, 2020

Uber Technologies Inc. was accused in a lawsuit of violating the U.S. Civil Rights Act by firing minority drivers based on how they’re rated by customers.
