Uber manager, Ruffin Chevaleau, laid off 3,500 people via 3-minute Zoom calls due to Covid-19. 

According to the Daily Mail, the ride-share business has been down by more than half in the wake of the pandemic—which resulted in eliminating 14% of Uber’s drivers. Chevaleau said she was devastated delivering the news via phone call.

She informed the former employees that they will remain on the payroll until the starting date of their severance package. On Monday, a company source said the online encounter was one of many video calls made by various Uber leaders. The company chose to conduct digital layoffs, affecting people in 46 countries, because their offices were closed due to coronavirus.
