CA Regulators Approve $9M Sexual Harassment Settlement With Uber

The California Public Utilities Commission on Thursday approved a $9 million settlement agreement with San Francisco-based ride-hailing service Uber related to its reporting of sexual harassment and assault cases.

The settlement between the CPUC’s Consumer Protection and Enforcement Division, Uber, and the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN) follows allegations by the CPUC that Uber failed to respond to its requests for information regarding sexual assaults and harassments involving passengers and drivers.

Uber will pay $9 million to support passenger safety initiatives, including $5 million to the California Victims Compensation Board to be used for the victims of violence and sexual violence, and $4 million to address physical and sexual violence in the industry.
