Tesla has been sued for mass layoffs; lawsuit claims Musk's business "failed to give advance written notice"
(MENAFN) Tesla has been sued by ex-staff who were laid off as part of the company's ongoing mass layoffs. The electric vehicle manufacturer has been accused of breaking federal law in the United States, according to the information.
According to a TV source, John Lynch and Daxton Hartsfield, who worked at Tesla's Gigafactory in Nevada state, claimed in their complaint that they were among "more than 500" Gigafactory employees who were fired.
The complaint claims that Tesla's mass layoff violated the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act.
The statute compels firms to provide employees at least 60 days' notice before closing a plant or laying off 50 or more workers from the same location.
"Tesla has failed to give Plaintiffs and the Class Members any advance written notice of their terminations," stated the lawsuit.
"Instead, Tesla has simply notified the employees that their terminations would be effective immediately. Tesla has also failed to provide a statement of the basis for reducing the notification period to zero days advance notice," it also highlighted.
They asked for class-action status in their complaint and demanded wages and benefits for 60 days.
