Uber offers no paid sick leave for drivers with coronavirus

Uber affirms to not pay sick leave for drivers if they are infected by the coronavirus because drivers are independent contractors in the USA. Uber sent drivers guidelines on how to deal with the coronavirus. The guidelines recommend drivers to disinfect their vehicles frequently, to stay home in case of any symptom related to the disease, and to not discriminate against passengers of any kind. The company provided sanitizers at driver service locations and established teams devoted to addressing the challenges imposed by the virus pandemic.
