Uber Technologies Inc.’s head of human resources has resigned, becoming the latest high-profile executive to depart a ride-hailing giant only just emerging from a year of internal upheaval.

Liane Hornsey’s exit came after an anonymous employee, emailing Uber’s whistle-blower account and Chief Legal Officer Tony West, threatened to go public with grievances if the company didn’t take action. The whistle-blower accused Hornsey of dismissing internal allegations of racial discrimination, according to a person who read the email. Bloomberg hasn’t obtained a copy of the complaints.
