Uber fined $59 million for sexual harassment data

Uber, the U.S. carrier company, will pay $59 million for refusing to provide information about sexual harassment to the California Public Utilities Commission, Bloomberg reported on December 15.

The agency said the company could be suspended if it fails to pay the fine within 30 days and comply with an administrative law judge’s decision between December and January.

Earlier, a California court demanded that Uber disclose the author of a passenger safety report the company released last year, as well as provide withholding information about sexual assault and sexual harassment complaints in California in 2017-2019.

Company spokesman Andrew Hasbun refrained from commenting on the matter, saying Uber has not yet reviewed the decision.
