Uber drivers have been told they have until April 25 to change their sexual orientation or face being fired.
The California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is investigating claims that drivers may have been fired because of their sexual preference.
According to the California Labor Commission, drivers were notified on May 5 that they had until May 19 to remove their driver’s license.
The agency said drivers should not attempt to change jobs or apply for other employment until the deadline.
Uber says it does not tolerate discrimination.
“We will continue to work to improve our processes for identifying and removing discrimination, and will continue our efforts to protect the rights of all drivers,” the company said in a statement.
The DMV did not respond to questions from Recode.
