Uber To Pay $7.5M To Settle Driver Lawsuit Over Background Checks

Uber is once again digging deep into the couch cushions to come up with the money to pay this $7.5 million settlement over background checks of its drivers. One lawsuit down, fifty more to go.

Uber has agreed to pay $7.5 million to settle a lawsuit brought by drivers over background checks conducted by the ride-hailing company, according to a court filing on Wednesday. The case in San Francisco federal court involved allegations that Uber terminated drivers from its platform after obtaining their consumer background reports without authorization.
