Elon Musk faces lawsuits from ex-Twitter workers

Twitter and Elon Musk have recently confirmed that they have reached an agreement. A few days later, Elon took full control of Twitter, and he made numerous changes within the first week of taking over the platform. One of the things that happened as a result of this was the mass termination of staff. Twitter has terminated the jobs of thousands of its employees over the last few weeks. It was all over within a few days, and yes, it happened all at once. In the immediate aftermath of the mass layoffs, a significant number of employees were upset about Elon’s decision and filed a lawsuit against him.

Many ex-Twitter employees are now suing Elon Musk for wrongful termination due to the fact that they were fired by Twitter illegally. Furthermore, there has been a lawsuit filed in San Francisco against the platform for converting the work office into a bedroom, which allows employees to sleep while at work as well.

There has been a lawsuit filed against Elon Musk by lawyer Shannon Liss-Riordan, who stated that it is troubling for the world’s richest man to believe that he has the authority to walk all over employee rights and not have to comply with the law, and we intend to hold him accountable for that. Elon’s lawyer’s word does not seem to be very trustworthy either. It is claimed that certain employees at Tesla are not receiving the monetary compensation and other benefits that were promised to them before Musk took over the company.

It is alleged by the lawyers that the layoff scheme was a secret one that violated California law by failing to provide workers with the proper compensation and a 60-day notice period in order to avoid a labor dispute. Various claims have also been made against Musk as a result of his harsh demands for his employees to either accept his vision for the company and to adopt a “hardcore” work ethic, or to accept three months’ pay and leave. According to the statement, the act violates the law in either case, as it violates both acts at the same time. It is also being challenged Musk’s hate for working from home, with staff with disabilities or health issues considering it unfair to be forced to return to the office in the face of his demands.

That being said, yes, I would say so. That was all the news that was available at the time. On a legal level, it’s clear that Elon Musk and the platform are not faring well in terms of their legal situation. We will have to wait and see how and when the legal bodies rule on this, and how Musk handles the situation once it comes to the courtroom.
