At least 3,500 Uber employees learned that they were being laid off in a three-minute Zoom call last week.
DailyMail obtained video of the call where Ruffin Chaveleau, head of Uber’s customer service, broke the news.
‘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 was been 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.
