Ride-sharing company Uber has fired at least 20 people after the tech giant investigated claims of sexual harassment within its ranks, NBC News reported.
The law firm Perkins Coie investigated 215 claims in its probe into the allegations. One hundred resulted in no action, according to a source. It was not immediately known who was among the at least 20 people fired.
NBC Bay Area has reached out to the company for comment.
Former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder was investigating claims of sexual harassment at Uber in a separate probe.
