Uber's HR Chief Leaves After Probe Into Handling of Discrimination Claims

Source: Wall Street Journal

Uber Technologies Inc. pushed out its human-resources chief after an internal investigation into her department’s handling of racial discrimination claims, according to people familiar with the company’s actions.

The departure of Liane Hornsey, who joined Uber in early 2017 from SoftBank Group Corp. , was announced to staff Tuesday in an email from Uber Chief Executive Dara Khosrowshahi. The email, reviewed by The Wall Street Journal, praised her as “talented, creative and hardworking.”

The people familiar with the company’s move said Ms. Hornsey resigned under pressure, following internal reports that she turned a blind eye to charges by anonymous employees of racial discrimination at the ride-hailing firm. Ms. Hornsey was the subject of a probe by one of Uber’s outside law firms into those claims, they said.

Ms. Hornsey didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment Tuesday night. Her departure and the investigation leading to it were reported earlier by Reuters.
