Uber says it paid $3 million to drivers & delivery workers in USA through its coronavirus sick pay program

Uber says it has paid out $3 million to drivers and delivery workers in the US through its coronavirus sick pay program, 7 April 2020 

Uber has paid $3 million in coronavirus sick pay to US drivers and delivery workers, a spokeswoman told Business Insider.

But drivers have found it nearly impossible to qualify for financial assistance from the company and have said it's enforcing the policy inconsistently.

Even drivers who met Uber's criteria were only paid after Business Insider reported their stories.

The spokeswoman said Uber acknowledges it made mistakes rolling out the policy, but that it is reviewing cases that may have been incorrectly decided and that it continues to support drivers.
