Uber Faces Questions About Reports of Discrimination Against a Transgender Driver

San Francisco City Attorney David Chiu has asked Uber to provide information on potentially discriminatory practices surrounding transgender, non-binary and gender nonconforming drivers.

Chiu signed the letter with Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer, and San Diego City Attorney Mara W. Elliott, sent Thursday by Feuer’s office in response to stories from drivers who said they were banned from Uber’s apps and outed to customers by the UberEats app.

“Transgender and gender nonconforming drivers should not have to put themselves in danger or navigate a bureaucratic nightmare just to make a living,” said Chiu. “Shielding drivers from workplace violence and ensuring equal opportunity to work are non-negotiable. We look forward to engaging with Uber to ensure that the company has adequate protections and policies in place for transgender drivers.”
