Uber lays off 3500 employees via 3min Zoom call

By  | 

At least 3,500 Uber employees have been retrenched, Thursday, via a Zoom call.

The head of Uber’s customer service, Ruffin Chaveleau, in the three-minute Zoom call told the employees that ‘today will be their last working day.’

‘We are eliminating 3,500 frontline customer support roles,’ Chaveleau said.

‘Your role is impacted and today will be your last working day with Uber’.

The cuts are being made among customer support and recruiting teams, meaning driver number will be largely unaffected.

A former Uber employee, who asked to remain anonymous, slammed the company for laying off so many people on a Zoom call and for the lack of notice.
