Top Uber executive resigns over sexual harassment charges
A senior executive from Uber has resigned after failing to inform the company that he had been accused of sexual harassment while he was working with Google.
Amit Singhal, who was the Senior Vice President of Engineering, gave in his resignation on Monday. This is after Uber is investigating allegations of sexual harassment in its own organization.
In February, a former engineer at Uber said that managers and human resources officers at the company had not punished her manager after she reported his unwanted sexual advances.
Uber has set up an urgent investigation into these claims. Singhal, who was hired in January, said he was not guilty of sexual harassment but admitted that he had failed to inform Uber when he was hired.
