    Unjustly deactivated after almost 4 years ( had a 4.88 rating ) of driving for not taking a NON service dog & a 4.88 rating

    The driver isn't being punished (this is, again, where you're thinking like a driver), the complaint is being investigated (only after the investigation, might the driver be punished, and by your own point, if it's unsubstantiated, they won't be, it will be dismissed). And yes, just about every...

    I agree that they can't know if it's true or false until they investigate, which is why they suspend... and investigate. They don't assume it's true (or false), they have a credible complaint (I said credible, not factual). I claim to have a service dog. You've not seen my trainer, you...

    You misunderstand on your first quote there. I mean if they kill someone AFTER the report was made (and they were allowed to continue driving). As for you having a situation like that, there must be some strange liberal laws there (although being DC, that wouldn't surprise me), as in most...

    So, let's assume that instead of the service animal complaint, it was a driving while drunk complaint, or a reckless driving complaint (which we both know people falsely claim as well). They should not suspend but instead just wait and see? What happens when it turns out that it's not a false...

    Unlawful termination over safety issues

    They can deactivate you for any non-protected reason (race, religion, disability, whistleblower status, etc.). As you're not claiming one of those, it's not "unlawful" termination. Even if you were working a normal job, you can be terminated for any non-protected reason. My firm could...

    Ah ok, I'd seen the settlement a while back, but had never noticed this specific break down for Uber Customer Service, thanks for showing it to me. :)

    This is good info. If I was Uber's council, I would suggest they amend the order some of this is listed. For example, telling a driver that they are perm deactivated prior to the investigation step that shows that if the dog bit them (as an example) they actually wouldn't be perm deactivated...

    Obviously I don't disagree that fraud is rampant, but I fear far too many drivers (and perhaps you as well) put the blame on "Gryft" when it should be rightly placed squarely on the shoulders of pax who make false claims. It's not just a service animal issue either. If I falsely claim that you...

    I know that you're a bit bitter towards "Gryft", but that's overstating it a bit (and by a bit, I mean a country mile). Sure, they require you to take service animals (Federal law does really, not "Gryft"). You could even say that they would require you to be polite about it (liking it is a...

    I'll save you a bit of waiting around. No attorney would take this on contingency ("Saul Goodman" would even refuse this), it's too much hassle with too little (or no) reward (most wouldn't take it even just on retainer). Going against Uber (other than to get a subpoena on the pax info) would...

    Uber Pet...how desperate are they becoming?

    You joke, but I heard about a case (thankfully not one of my clients) who had a near full size stuffed animal (husky dog) that she insisted was her service animal. For some reason this turned into a big kerfluffel with some place (not sure why lol). The bottom line basically became that it...

    Uber Pet...how desperate are they becoming?

    Several people have tried to correct you, yet you refuse to listen to facts. You're the one spreading misinformation. However, since you are so clearly confused, let me break it down for you. Support animals (also called emotional support animals or ESAs) are not covered by the ADA (in fact...

    Uber Pet coming soon!

    X will still have the option to choose to accept (or reject) pets (of course, service dogs will still be required). UberPet is just for drivers already willing to accept. The idea is that people with pets will just do UberPet and get a driver that is sure to accept the pet (for the extra fee...

    Now it's uber pet

    I actually saw this a long time ago, when it was still in development, it will be run as a separate service (like XL, Black, Eats, etc.). As they are running it as a separate service (with regular X still available), it will be fine (although drivers still wouldn't be able to refuse service...

    Question?

    And a moderator here who used to drive with their service dog (nope, not a pit bull hehe). To answer the question, yes you can drive with your service dog (like the pax, it needs to be a legitimate service dog). Yes, you need to have all 4 seats available (it's rare in my market for someone to...

    Dinner and a dog bite

    Well I'm glad they came to their senses about being dog friendly. Not only is it a bad situation for untrained dogs, it puts service dogs in danger too. Probably best for everyone to not be "dog friendly" anyway.

    Dinner and a dog bite

    I have to agree with New2This. Why would the restaurant give you a discount? The other dog owner is to blame, this wasn't the restaurant's fault (other than being dog friendly to begin with, which is also why you had your dog there, so you really can't blame them on that one). One gate to a...

    Service dog vent - documentation

    So, you act like invisible disabilities are just Anxiety and PTSD. What about epileptics, autistics, diabetics, etc.? You wouldn't know they were disabled looking at them outwardly (IE, not visible disabilities). Are you saying they aren't actually disabled and are just snowflakes? This is...

    Uber refused ride because of service dog, blind woman says (Video)

    Uber refused ride because of service dog, blind woman says (Video) Robbie Esper is legally blind and is deaf and her guide dog Sarah is vital to help her get around. So she couldn't believe it when an Uber driver denied her a ride Sunday at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport...

    50 pound Pit Bull and service dogs account suspended

    In a small car like a Fiesta, especially with a second passenger, the front seat is indeed the logical place for a service dog handler (and the dog) to go. Think it through logically. In a mid size car, the dog could probably go at my feet in the back still. But in a Fiesta, if it was just...
