Uber Driver Alleges Uber Boost Services Fees Illegal
March 26, 2018
A North Carolina man and Uber driver alleges the ride-hailing company unlawfully takes a service fee charge out of Boost and Surge calculations.
Martin Dulberg, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, filed a complaint on March 14 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of
California against Uber Technologies Inc. and Rasier LLC alleging breach of contract.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff drives for Uber using both its Uber X and Uber Select platforms. During times of increased demand, the suit states
that a separate charge known as Surge is applied or a multiplier known as Boost.
