Re: No lawsuit?
@freehe: It's not just women.  Male employees with legitimate employment beefs too (including, in one instance, a male employee -- not a client -- who was peripheral to a matter which which I was involved having been fired in likely reprisal for taking legitimate FMLA/paternity leave).

And I see the same thing with age discrimination claims, ADA claims, and even contested unemployment-benefits cases.

Uber
I was a huge fan of Uber. I still am but this gives me pause. It seems as though the only place women are safe is at home. On the way to work, at lunch, after work or at the job women are frequently harrassed sexually or non-sexually and it is tragic that no one cares enough about women to do anything about it.

Re: Wondering it that too...
@Joe Stanganelli, I know it won't but it should. This is a topic for another discussion but until women are viewed as equals in the workforce this will continue to occur.

Re: No lawsuit?
@Joe Stanganelli, thanks for the insight. It is so complicated no wonder women rarely win their cases.

Re: No lawsuit?
@Sarah Thomas, it is good that she didn't name names because the Uber could sue her and win because they have money more to hire lawyers even if they are guilty.

Hopefully she decides to sue Uber, this is the only way to stop this behavior at companies.

Re: Bad times at Uber
@Sarah, this disgusts me. It is harder enough for women to get into the workforce and then have to deal with this. I have been sexually harrassed too many times during my career and each time feel like the first time. It is horrible to be treated in that manner. Most companies protect the managers and do nothing to help the victims which are usually women.

Re: Wondering it that too...
@brooks: Oh, yes, I'm well aware of the bureaucratic hoops and hurdles surrounding the legacy taxi profession (and how expensive compliance matters are there).

Which is the nice thing about services like Uber and Lyft and the like -- that they democratize a system that has been fundamentally broken for a long time.

Re: Wondering it that too...
The point is that we all can be very selective when it comes to our "outrage," and one of the biggest factors in determining degree of outrage is how an issue affects us personally. We're seeing this play out on a very wide scale with US entitlement programs right now. Most of what passes for outrage now is pretty shallow. And yet, we are in what may ultimately be known as the Era of Rageaholics.

Re: Wondering it that too...
@Joe,

There are regulatory requirements that Hotels that compete with Airbnb and Taxi Drivers that compete with Uber have to fulfill.  That is a very different situation from Myspace and Facebook.  Now, should the taxi industry done a better job - Yes.

Let me use a simple example here.  If you are an Uber Driver, they are going to have to walk a REALLY fine line on W-2 versus 1099 employee.  The State of California has a separate view from a Worker's Comp standpoint than the IRS does from a Tax standpoint.  Uber drivers don't have to apply for a hack license where taxi cab drivers do.
