Travis Kalanick Uber CEO On Leave Of Absence Without A Firm Return Date
Travis Kalanick Uber Technologies Chief Executive Officer and co-founder is to take a leave of absence, without a firm return date, this following a slew of scandals, including allegations of harassment, discrimination and an aggressive culture.
Uber’s board met Sunday to review a detailed version of a report by Eric Holder, former U.S. attorney general, containing 47 recommendations including creating a board oversight committee, rewriting Uber’s cultural values, reducing alcohol use at work events, and prohibiting intimate relationships between employees and their bosses.
The board is expected to approve and implement the recommendations and will strip Travis Kalanick of some duties and appoint an independent chair to limit his influence. BM
