The US Department of Justice is suing Uber Technologies for discrimination against people with disabilities. TASS reports.

The department accused the company of forcing the disabled to pay extra waiting time. The Department of Justice noted that Uber has not modified its rules for paying waiting times for people who, for health reasons, need more than two free minutes to get in a car.

The United States demanded that the airline stop discrimination, change its pricing policy, and compensate injured passengers. In addition, Uber was fined.

On August 5, it became known that Uber spent a lot of money to attract taxi drivers. As a result, the company’s shares fell 2.29 percent.

Current and former employees of the company see several main reasons for the high rate of employee turnover. Some believe that Uber has faced a lot of competition lately.
