Uber Set for Changes Over Harassment Issues
15 June 2017, 01:52 | Shelley Chandler
The board of directors at Uber Technologies is mulling over granting its CEO and founder Travis Kalanick a three-month leave of absence in the wake of the boating tragedy that killed his mother and put his father in a hospital.
Michael's departure would mark the latest in a series of high-profile resignations at Uber.
A spokesman confirmed that the board met with Holder and Tammy Albarrán, both partners with Covington & Burling, a law firm hired to investigate complaints of widespread sexual harassment and other deep-seated cultural problems at Uber.
Since the investigation started in March, Kalanick has been at the center of Uber's harassment scandal as reports from former employees claimed the company's culture and tone was set from the top.
Emil Michael, Uber's senior vice president for business and the company's second in command, is leaving Uber.
On the agenda at Sunday's meeting were a possible leave of absence for Mr Kalanick and potentially parting ways with Mr Michael. He was also said to have been one of the executives who viewed medical records of a woman who had been raped by an Uber driver in New Delhi. Hundreds of employees are going to be interviewed and Emil Michael might be removed from the picture.
The company hired former United States attorney general Eric Holder in February after an ex-engineer penned a blog post about the "strange" year she experienced while at Uber.
With just seventeen days before ride sharing companies begin to make their trips across upstate NY, one of the big business ventures, Uber, is making changes - and possibly not for the better. The board consists of seven voting members, including Kalanick himself.
He's also attracted controversy - a 2014 BuzzFeed report said he threatened to dig up dirt on journalists critical of the company.
The Uber board of directors is said to have "unanimously voted to adopt all of the recommendations made in the report", according to the New York Times.
Uber must get rid of leaders who tolerate bad behavior and hire people who don't - including up to the chief executive - experts say, as the ride-hailing company gets ready to announce significant changes to its culture and management.
Uber may be run by a management committee, though a single internal executive could also be selected. "I think a big part of this was making sure they had the legal basis to do so".

Board adopts report on Uber's culture but stay quiet on CEO
Kalanick is also facing a personal trauma: Last month his mother died in a boating accident, which also badly injured his father. The company's board on Sunday voted unanimously to adopt all recommendations from a report prepared by former U.S.
