Uber says no to class action lawsuits in rider assault cases — but it’s up to court to decide

Fatima Goss Graves, president and CEO of the National Women’s Law Center, said it’s common for employers to require arbitration of employees and customers, and that employees waive any rights to bring a class action. Graves said the changes Uber made are “important and survivor-driven policies” but “they didn’t go far enough,” said Graves, citing the class action waiver. “We have a long history in this country of people binding together to change institutions and structures that aren’t working for them,” she said.
