Ex-Uber employees allege 'deeply troubling' practices

Posted online

Four former security employees at Uber are claiming the company is attempting to block them from disclosing “a number of deeply troubling practices at Uber that have not been publicly revealed."

The former employees, Mat Henley, Nicholas Gicinto, Edward Russo and Jacob Nocon, did not substantiate their claim in a state court filing in San Francisco.

They said they have evidence of "potentially criminal initiatives against competitors, secret capabilities embedded in Uber’s smartphone applications and offensive intrusions into the privacy of users."

"We don’t object to these former employees making any claims they wish,” Uber spokesman Matt Kallman said in an emailed statement. “What we do object to is their walking off with company property and their misuse of privileged information for personal gain."
