Travis Kalanick has been criticised for his management style which he admitted needs improvement.
Full view will be published shortly.
After firing more than 20 employees last week, Uber's board is considering temporarily removing its top two executives, including CEO Travis Kalanick and his right-hand Emil Michael, the New York Times reported Sunday.
Earlier this year after a blog post from former employee Susan Fowler went viral, the company had to come forward and comment on allegations of the suppression of sexual harassment claims across the company structure.
Uber's board is reportedly considering a leave of absence for Kalanick following his mother's death and father's injury in a serious boating accident last month.
He's also attracted controversy - a 2014 BuzzFeed report said he threatened to dig up dirt on journalists critical of the company.
The world's most valuable venture-backed private company has found itself at a crossroads as its rough-and-tumble approach to local regulations and handling employees and drivers has led to a series of problems.
In the past four months, Uber has lost a president and the heads of its autonomous driving unit, finance, mapping, policy, software engineering, and product and growth. In the aftermath he said "I must fundamentally change as a leader and grow up". One of its recommendations called for Kalanick's departure. Fasten, an Uber rival that operates in Boston and Austin, Texas, said it saw a 25 percent ridership increase the week after an Uber boycott started.
Earlier this year, Uber's general counsel recommended that Emil Michael take a leave of absence until the results of the Holder report were delivered.
According to Bloomberg Michael was forced out of Uber by the board after an investigation into workplace harassment and culture was presented to directors on Sunday over a seven-hour meeting. Michael also allegedly saw the medical reports of a rape victim that had been obtained by another Uber executive, Recode reported on Friday.
Uber has sincefaced other problems, including an intellectual property dispute over self-driving auto technology with Waymo, the self-driving vehicle business that operates under Google's parent company.
