Uber founder Travis Kalanick is leaving the company’s board


Former Uber CEO Travis Kalanick is making another stride once more from the organization he helped found. On Tuesday, Uber declared that Kalanick plans to leave its top managerial staff on December 31st. Pushing ahead, Kalanick plans to “center around his new business and charitable undertakings.”

Kalanick was the CEO of Uber from 2010 to 2017. During that time, he was no more odd to contention, with Uber much of the time springing up in the news for its poisonous work culture and endeavors to deceive controllers. Kalanick was in the long run expelled from the situation after a gathering of financial specialists wrote a letter, requesting an adjustment in initiative at the organization. He was supplanted by current CEO Dara Khosrowshahi.

Before today, there were at that point signs Kalanick was prepared to go separate ways with Uber. Since the lockup of the organization’s stock finished on November sixth, Kalanick has sold more than $2.1 billion worth of his stake in Uber.

While Kalanick hasn’t had an immediate job in driving Uber for over two years, the organization is, from numerous points of view, as yet managing the repercussions of his residency. Not long ago, the organization set up a $4.4 million store for present and previous workers who were explicitly annoyed at the organization. The settlement goes back to a 2017 test the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) propelled after previous Uber representative Susan Fowler expounded on her inappropriate behavior encounters at the organization. Kalanick, alongside upper administration, purportedly disregarded rehashed cases of inappropriate behavior at the organization.

Driver pay is another issue that began with Kalanick and has kept on devouring the organization from that point forward. Recently, Uber consented to pay about $650 million in late New Jersey state joblessness and inability protection charges. In close by New York state, 96,000 drivers met up to sue the organization over unpaid wages going back to 2011.
