The never-ending scandals at Uber have reached a point of reckoning and according to multiplereports, the ride-sharing startup's board will be making some major decisions today.
Top business executive Emil Michael, a chief confidant of Mr Kalanick, was also to part ways with the company. She saidKalanick should "absolutely not" leave his role as CEO.
Since February, six of Kalanick's direct reports have left, leaving his management team hollowed out. The meeting, which Uber has not publicised, could be a pivotal moment for the world's most valuable venture-backed private company, which has upended the tightly regulated taxi industry in many countries but has run into legal trouble with a rough-and-tumble approach to local regulations and the way it handles employees and drivers. Uber too, will be devoid of a leader and this may come as a huge blow for the company as the cab-hailing market turns competitive across the globe. Frances Frei, a former professor and administrator at Harvard Business School, is known as an expert on changing organizations. Although Emil Michael has not been asked to resign, nor has he done so, he is reportedly evaluating his options at this time.

According to sources speaking with the New York Times, the question of whether Kalanick should take a leave of absense rests in the hands of Garrett Camp, Uber's chairman, and board member Ryan Graves. But there was no word yet on any action related to Kalanick or other executives. Rachel Whetstone, the head of policy who quit in April, was seen as being one of the few people willing to stand up to the chief executive.
Holder's recommendations included imposing new controls on company spending, human resources and other areas where executives had wide discretion.
The company's board is being briefed Sunday about an investigation into sexual harassment and workplace culture at Uber, a source told CNNTech.
The investigation began when a former employee Susan Fowler alleged that she was harassed when she worked for the company.
