Former Twitter employees are suing Elon Musk for unfair dismissal


Former Twitter employees claim they were not given sufficient notice under US federal law when they were locked out of their work accounts on Thursday.

On Thursday, colleagues were informed in a company-wide message that if they were removed as part of the platform’s mass layoffs, they would receive an email to their personal email accounts.

Before those letters came, several of colleagues tweeted that they had been fired after finding they could no longer access their work email accounts or laptops.

Musk’s plans to lay off up to 3,700 employees may be foiled after a complaint was filed in federal court in San Francisco seeking orders requiring Twitter to comply with the federal Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act, which requires 60 days’ notice for mass layoffs at big businesses.

On November 1, one Twitter employee was fired, while three others were not informed but had their email accounts blocked.

The lawsuit referenced Tesla’s firings, in which the company offered one or two weeks’ pay in order to avoid Warn Act requirements.

“Plaintiffs here are reasonably concerned that, absent court intervention, Twitter will engage in similar behaviour and seek releases from laid-off employees without informing them of their rights or the pendency of this case,” according to the petition.

The allegation was reported by Bloomberg

After completing the $44 billion deal, Musk fired Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal, finance chief Ned Segal, and legal affairs and policy leader Vijaya Gadde.

Musk’s social media platform redesign involves job losses. Musk has also ordered Twitter to reduce cloud and server spending in order to save $1 billion per year.

Change the “blue tick” verification technique from one that validates identification to one that costs $8 per month.

On Thursday, Twitter employees used the hashtag #OneTeam to show their support for one another. After discovering that their work accounts had been banned, employees posted on social media with the hashtag #LoveWhereYouWorked.

Musk said, “I’m an alien trying to get back to my home planet” in response to “what’s the craziest conspiracy theory you think might be true?”
