Green lights given to murderer and sex offenders by Uber driver checks, regulators claim

District attorners in San Francisco and Los Angeles say several drivers have criminal histories which were not picked up by Uber's criminal record checks. Uber unwittingly hired sex offenders, identity thieves, burglars, a kidnapper and a convicted murderer, California prosecutors said, even when they had undergone checks. The case surrounds Uber drivers in the US, differing from that used in the UK, which uses local authority licensing and enhanced DBS checks.
