Uber has fired more than 20 people and discovered more than 200 cases of sexual harassment as a result of a probe into the company’s workplace culture, Bloomberg reported.

The investigation was conducted by Perkins Coie, and an attorney from the firm presented the probe’s findings at an all-hands meeting on Tuesday, according to the report, which cited a person familiar with the matter.

The firm apparently looked into 215 reported harassment claims in the company.

A spokeswoman for Uber did not immediately respond when asked to comment.
