It appears that Uber outsourced the background checks. Is there anything this company doesn’t outsource?
… Now, however, sources inside Uber have confirmed that the company did not carry out its own checks on drivers contracted through black car companies. Since all TCP’s must, by law, run drivers through background checks, Uber had relied on those checks without doing any of its own.
In other words, Uber has been misrepresenting that it vetted all drivers itself when, for more than half of its fleet, it was trusting its partner companies to do the due diligence.
The company did not return requests for comments about whether it will start running its own background checks on TCP drivers outside the San Francisco market.
