Uber technologies, a U.S. online car Hailing service provider, has been accused of violating the U.S. Civil Rights Act because it fired minority drivers based on the comments of passengers. On Monday local time, former Uber driver Thomas Liu filed a lawsuit against Uber in San Francisco Federal District Court on behalf of the company’s national non white driver. < p > < p > in the lawsuit filed, he alleges that “Uber knows that passengers discriminate in their evaluation of drivers, but Uber continues to use the evaluation system. Therefore, Uber should be responsible for intentional racial discrimination. ” In fact, four years ago, Thomas Liu filed a complaint with the United States Fair Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) about Uber’s behavior for the first time, but the Commission did not give a judgment on the accusation, but encouraged him to take further action to the court in August this year. < p > < p > Thomas Liu filed the lawsuit in court, claiming that Uber encouraged passengers to grade drivers and rated drivers from 1 to 5 stars based on their scores, eventually causing employees with poor average scores and ratings to “stop work.”. He said he often suffered prejudice and discrimination when driving an online car appointment for Uber in San Diego. For example, when a passenger sees his picture, he will sometimes cancel his service or ask him some unfriendly questions. In October 2015, Uber terminated his job because his passengers rated him on average below the lowest 4.6. < p > < p > Uber insists that its drivers are independent contractors and are not protected by the civil rights act of 1964. However, the lawsuit claims that Uber has sufficient control over the driver and is fully dependent on the driver’s labor, who should be employees under the Civil Rights Act.
