June 12 (UPI) -- The Uber Technologies Inc. board of directors announced it voted to approve all recommendations in a probe of alleged workplace sexual harassment.
The announcement came after a 7-hour meeting at the company's San Francisco headquarters on Sunday.
Former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and his law firm led an investigation into the global ride-hailing company's reputation as a male-oriented, unprincipled company. The probe was prompted by allegations that Uber's human resources department made no attempt to deal with numerous reported incidents of sexual harassment. The investigation determined Uber management had a high tolerance for behavior prejudicial against women, Fortune reported Monday.
Holder's probe also uncovered Uber CEO Travis Kalanick and head of business Emil Michael's involvement in two incidents: the mishandling of medical records of a rape victim in India and a 2014 visit to a Seoul karaoke bar which prompted a human-resource complaint by a female Uber employee.
Uber confirmed last week that a study of 215 sexual harassment complaints led to the firing of 20 people.
Details of the recommendations in the report, and Uber's plans to make corrections, are expected to be announced Tuesday. They could include the firing of Michael and a leave of absence for Kalanick, Bloomberg News reported Monday.
The company is currently without a chief operating officer and chief financial officer. Last week it announced it hired Frances Frei as senior vice president for strategy and leadership, and Bozoma St. James, formerly of Apple Inc., as chief brand officer. Another woman, former Nestle SA executive vice president Wan Ling Martello, is expected to be appointed to the board.
