Uber told employees during a company-wide meeting on Tuesday that it has fired 20 employees in connection with an investigation by law firm Perkins Coie into workplace harassment and bullying, as first reported by Bloomberg and BuzzFeed.

Here are the key numbers, according to a source familiar with the situation:

  • 215 total incidents
  • 20 terminations
  • 7 written warnings
  • 31 employees required to undergo training and/or counseling
  • 57 cases still under review

Correction: Axios originally reported that the 20 included former VP of product and growth Ed Baker, whose departure was previously disclosed in March, but that was wrong.

Questions remain: Another report, compiled by former U.S. attorney general Eric Holder's law firm and commissioned following a former employee's explosive allegations of workplace harassment and discrimination, is still being reviewed by Uber's board of directors. Results are expected to be shared with Uber employees during next Tuesday's all-hands meeting.

The headline has been updated to better reflect the reasons for the firings.
