Automaker Tesla was sued in the United States by two fired employees this month. They worked at the Tesla factory in the town of Sparks, Nevada. According to the two former employees, the company did not announce in time that there would be layoffs, which is against the law.
According to former employees, 500 people have been laid off at the Nevada plant alone in recent months. It would be a reorganization that Tesla should have announced at least 60 days in advance. Instead, employees were suddenly told not to come back.
According to the press service Reuters Tesla Chief Executive Elon Musk, the richest person on the planet, said earlier this month he had a “super bad feeling” about the economy. As a result, he would begin to downsize.
The two former employees want to continue to be paid for another 60 days by the company and want other Tesla employees in the United States who were suddenly terminated to be compensated as well.
The company has yet to publicly comment on the ex-employees’ decision to go to court.
