PBS show explores misconduct at Uber and Outten & Golden’s class action lawsuit success

Outten & Golden LLP

Recently, PBS and its New York affiliate, WLIW, aired an episode of renowned journalist Sheelah Kolhatkar’s show “Playing by the Rules” that focused on Uber and featured interviews with our lawyers Jahan Sagafi, Iris Mattes, and Rachel Dempsey.  That episode explores what went wrong at Uber, and how it found itself the subject of intense public scrutiny and criticism for allegations of discrimination and harassment.  In the episode, our legal team discusses their work advocating on behalf of female software engineers and software engineers of color who stood up to unfair employment practices and achieved a $10,000,000 class action settlement and an agreement by Uber to engage in a three-year program of improved employment practices to stamp out discrimination and harassment.  The episode is available at https://www.wliw.org/programs/playing-rules-ethics-work/driven-iqgrcz/ .
