Josh Mohrer, Uber NYC general manager, at a TLC public hearing earlier this year.
An Uber spokesperson said the company has “taken disciplinary actions” against Josh Mohrer, the New York City general manager, after launching an investigation into two separate incidents and possible privacy violations 10 days ago.
Mohrer, as BuzzFeed News reported, accessed this reporter’s personal Uber account twice without express permission, including one occasion during which he tracked a ride in real time.
“Violations of this policy do result in disciplinary action, including the possibility of termination and legal action,” a previous statement from the company read.
BuzzFeed News reached out for more information, including who performed the investigation and exactly what action Mohrer faced, but Uber representative Natalia Montalvo said they were not providing any additional details.
