Welcome to the del Toro Lopez v. Uber Technologies, Inc. Settlement

 

If you worked at Uber as a Software Engineer, you could get a payment from this class and collective action settlement.

 

What is this lawsuit about?

In the lawsuit, Plaintiffs claimed that Uber’s policies and practices regarding compensation and promotion violated federal and California state laws by unlawfully discriminating against women and Latino/Latina/Hispanic, African American/Black, Native American, Alaskan Native, and/or multiracial individuals (who are in part one of the foregoing races) who work or worked for Uber as Software Engineers 1 and 2, Senior Software Engineers 1 and 2, and Staff Software Engineers ("Covered Software Engineering Positions"), and that there was harassment or a hostile work environment for those employees.  The lawsuit asked the Court to require Uber to provide damages, penalties, and other compensation to those employees (or former employees).  The lawsuit also sought to compel Uber to change its policies and procedures so that such conduct does not happen in the future.

Uber denies that it did anything wrong and contends that, among other things, it has complied at all times with applicable federal and California law.

A more detailed description of this lawsuit and important court documents may be found on the Important Documents page of this website.

 

Who is included?

Judge Gonzalez Rogers determined that everyone who fits the following description is a Settlement Class Member: any woman (of any race or national origin) and any Latino/Latina/Hispanic, African American/Black, Native American, Alaskan Native, and/or multiracial individual (who is in part one of the foregoing races) who worked in a Covered Software Engineering Position and who was employed by Uber in the United States at any time between July 31, 2013 and April 19, 2018.  Judge Gonzalez Rogers also determined that everyone who fits the following description is Settlement Collective Member: any woman of any race or national origin who worked in a Covered Software Engineering Position and who was employed by Uber in the United States at any time between July 31, 2014 and April 19, 2018.

If you are still not sure whether you are included, or if you believe you are included but did not receive a Notice, you can ask for free help.  You can call the Claims Administrator at (866) 516-7248, or Plaintiffs' counsel (the lawyers appointed to represent the Class and Collective) at (415) 638-8800.

 

How do I participate in the Settlement?

Each Class Member who does not opt out of the settlement will receive a share of the settlement funds from Fund A.

For the opportunity to receive an additional share of the settlement funds from Fund B, you must have completed and properly submitted a Claim Form describing any (a) gender, race or national origin harassment or hostile work environment, regardless of whether or not you sought medical or psychological treatment, and/or (b) gender, race or national origin discrimination in compensation, raises, job assignments, job code placement, evaluations, ratings, promotions, demotions, or other terms and conditions of employment that caused you to seek medical or psychological treatment, in either case while employed by Uber on or after July 31, 2013.  Any award from Fund B was calculated using an objective scoring system developed by the Settlement Administrator in conjunction with the lawyers for Plaintiffs and Uber's outside lawyers.  Submitting a Claim Form does not guarantee payment.  If you submitted a Claim Form, you received a notice with the amount of your Fund B payment before your deadline for excluding yourself from or objecting to the settlement.

YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS AND OPTIONS

Do nothing If you do nothing, you will receive a check for an amount estimated in your Notice as your share of Fund A.
Submit a claim form You also have the option to submit a Claim Form to receive a share of the money in Fund B (in addition to your money from Fund A).  The Claim Form allows you to describe incidents of harassment, hostile work environment and discrimination based on your gender, race or national origin, while you were employed by Uber on or after July 31, 2013, as well as their impact on you. (Deadline Has Expired) 
Exclude yourself (opt out) You may exclude yourself or “opt out” if you do not wish to participate in the settlement.  If you choose this option, you get no payment and will not release any claims against Uber.  (Deadline Has Expired) 
Comment (including Object) Write to the Court about what you think about the settlement.  (Deadline Has Expired) 
Go to the hearing If you would like, you may ask to speak in Court about the fairness of the settlement.  You do not need to do this to receive a payment.  (Deadline Has Expired) 

 

These rights and options—and the deadlines to exercise them—are explained in the Notice.  The Court still has to decide whether to finally approve the settlement.  Payments will be made only if the Court approves the settlement and after appeals, if any, are resolved.  This is not a lawsuit against you.  Your participation in this lawsuit and acceptance of money from the settlement will not affect your employment status in any way.
