Uber and Lyft have announced they will no longer require people who are sexually harassed or assaulted by drivers into forced arbitration, meaning passengers, drivers and employees of Uber and Lyft can now pursue lawsuits over sexual harassment or sexual assault. This new policy also ends the practice of forcing victims into signing confidentiality agreements as part of arbitration to settle claims. The shift comes after dozens of Uber and Lyft drivers have been accused of sexually harassing, assaulting or raping passengers.
