If Uber kicks out a driver, that's usually all she wrote. They have to look for new work, even if the final offense was something beyond their control. In New York City, however, it's a different story. A newly instituted appeals process, the result of negotiations with the Independent Drivers Guild, will let ex-drivers challenge certain bans and potentially resume their ridesharing. They'll face a panel of five other drivers (jointly picked by the Guild and Uber) who can reverse deactivations where there's some room for dispute, such as excessive cancellations or passing on too many rides.
