MILAN (Reuters) – A Milan prosecutor has asked a court to abrogate the special administration it placed on an Italian unit of Uber Technologies (NYSE 🙂 in an investigation into the alleged exploitation of drivers in the delivery of groceries.
A judicial source confirmed the prosecutor’s request.
Italian judges placed the company under special administration in May while investigating a case involving around 1,000 delivery drivers allegedly paid three euros an hour to deliver meals.
A company under special administration can continue to operate, but is run by court-appointed administrators instead of the usual management team. The administrators are required to send reports to the judges on a regular basis.
“The court-appointed administrator’s report shows that the company has implemented a plan to improve compliance with the resulting corporate restructuring,” Uber Italy said in a statement.
“We have worked hard over the past few months to strengthen our processes to provide couriers with a safe, rewarding and flexible work environment,” said the company, adding that it will continue to work with the authorities.
The court will decide within 15 days whether the motion will be accepted, the court source added.
