Uber’s SVP Of Engineering Is Out After Not Disclosing Sexual Harassment Allegation

I'm not exactly an expert on this kind of thing but, if you have skeletons in your closet, it might be a good idea to let your current employers know about them before stuff like this happens.

Amit Singhal has left his job at Uber as its SVP of engineering because he did not disclose to the car-hailing company that he left Google a year earlier after top executives there informed him of an allegation of sexual harassment from an employee that an internal investigation had found “credible.” Singhal was asked to resign by Uber CEO Travis Kalanick this morning.
