|Uber’s board voted unanimously on Sunday to adopt a series of recommendations from former Attorney General Eric Holder to reform the ride-hailing service’s corporate culture following a sexual harassment investigation. The recommendations, which are expected to be announced to employees on Monday, are expected to impose tighter controls on spending, human resources, and other areas where executives have had an unusual degree of autonomy. Holder and his law firm were hired in February to investigate Uber’s inner workings after former Uber engineer Susan Fowler published a blog post describing what she said was an insufficient response by senior managers to allegations of sexual harassment. The board was also weighing a possible three-month leave of absence for the company’s controversial CEO, Travis Kalanick.
