San Francisco (Staff Report): The well-funded transportation company Uber 's senior vice president of engineering Amit Singhal, is out after a sexual harassment complaint. Uber CEO Travis Kalanick asked Singhal to resign Monday morning, US media reported.
The investigations about the complaint at Google were exposed in a background check done on Singhal before being hired by Uber , international media reported.
In a statement published in American newspapers, Singhal condemned harassment in any setting and said "I do not condone and have not committed such behavior."
Allegation of sexism, cut-throat management, and a toxic work environment have Uber trying to pull its image out of a skid as competition revs in the on-demand ride market.
Controversies threaten to revive a #DeleteUber campaign triggered by Kalanick´s short-lived plan to be part of a business advisory group for US President Donald Trump.
