Uber Is Finalizing Payouts In $10M Harassment Settlement

Dozens of current and former Uber employees who filed harassment claims against the company stand to collect an average of roughly $34,000 each.

The ride-hailing company revealed back in March that it had agreed to settle a class-action lawsuit for $10 million.  

The complaint was filed by two Latina software engineers on behalf of 420 women and people of color who accused Uber of discrimination, harassment and creating a hostile work environment. Now, we're learning how that $10 million settlement is getting divided up.

Bloomberg reports that beyond the 56 current and former workers who'll each get $34,000, those employees and 431 others are also going to get payouts of just under $11,000 to make up for salary disparities.

A hearing to finalize Uber's settlement is scheduled for early November.
