Despite initially promising two weeks of sick pay, Lyft has adjusted its coronavirus policy to make it more difficult for drivers to get their full compensation, CNet's Dara Kerr reports. Initially, the company said on its website that it would pay drivers an amount based on "rides they provided on the Lyft platform over the last four weeks," according to screenshots collected by CNET from last month, adding that that language has now quietly disappeared. "It's pretty concerning how handling this and responding to the virus," said a former senior Lyft employee, who wishes to remain anonymous for fear of retaliation. "It's very company-first and doing what's best for the company, but it's at odds with what's best for drivers and passengers." Reference Link

Dave Lee , writing for the Financial Times says that ride-hailing company Uber has begun listing alternative job openings for its drivers amid a dramatic drop in demand for Uber rides. The ride-hailing company is listing jobs at other companies including at 7-Eleven, Amazon and McDonald's amid a slowdown from the impacts of the virus, added the FT story. "The move is in line with Uber's long-term strategy of becoming a wholesaler of temporary workers to multiple industries beyond transport and delivery. In 2019, it launched Uber Works, a short-term staffing service, in Chicago, Dallas and Miami.," added the FT. Reference Link

Goldman Sachs analyst Heath Terry lowered the firm's price target on Uber to $41 from $49 and keeps a Buy rating on the shares. The analyst lowered his estimates and price target on the company to reflect his expectations for COVID-19 impact. Terry believes Uber "will benefit in both its primary segments as the pace of consolidation accelerates and it uses its scale and balance sheet, to gain share both competitively and strategically." He sees the ride-hailing company as "one of the better long-term risk/reward opportunities among those stocks most severely impacted by the decline in the market."

Goldman Sachs analyst Heath Terry lowered the firm's price target on Lyft to $37 from $64 and keeps a Buy rating on the shares. The analyst lowered his estimates and price target on the company to reflect his expectations for COVID-19 impact. He sees gross bookings in the U.S. ride hailing segment declining by ~50% in Q2 before recovering to roughly flat in Q4, with substantially higher growth in 2021 from an easier comparison.

Uber Eats said that users in New York will be able to contribute to their favorite local restaurants directly from the app at checkout. Uber will then match every contribution with a donation to the Restaurant Employee Relief Fund for a total commitment of up to $5M for the group's important work. Among other things, the Relief Fund is providing $500 grants to eligible restaurant workers-including couriers working on delivery apps like Uber Eats-who have been hurt financially by the current crisis. "The restaurant industry is being decimated by this virus, and it's going to take people helping people to get through it," says Paul Barker, owner of Pauli's North End in Boston, MA, an Uber Eats partner. "As business owners, my wife and I are focused on helping our staff put food on their tables. Efforts like Uber Eats' and Guy Fieri's with the Restaurant Employee Relief Fund are rising to the occasion-helping people to help the people in their communities when they need it most." Following a trial period in New York City, the company hopes to expand this feature across the United States next week, and into other countries soon after. Reference Link

Uber (UBER) and Lyft (LYFT) drivers are encountering an obstacle in their efforts to apply for the coronavirus unemployment benefits offered by Congress as state agencies claim they are not prepared to receive a class of workers who are completely new to the unemployment system, Tina Bellon of Reuters reported. Gig workers were included in the federal government's coronavirus stimulus bill to receive unemployment benefits typically reserved for full-time employees. However, it is still unclear what documentation gig workers, who do not receive wage and tax forms, are required to provide to prove their income. Reference Link
