Tesla sued after failing to stop 'systematic' racial discrimination of employees

Tesla sued after failing to stop 'systematic' racial discrimination of employees

The court case filed in Oakland in California state court is at least the 3rd filed in 2017 by black employees who claim that they were referred to using racial insults and that the firm ignored their grievances.

Tesla has outright denied claims that its factories are a "hotbed for racism", as described in a lawsuit by former employee Marcus Vaughn. However, CEO Elon Musk during earnings call had stated that the company will not be able to fulfill its target of producing 5,000 Model 3s by December end. "Part of not being a huge jerk is considering how someone might feel who is part of a historically less represented group", Musk's email reads. That would be true at any point, of course, and one thing I have tried to reinforce this year is that the Consumer Bureau is far more than its director ... He's seeking unspecified general and punitive monetary damages as well as an order for Tesla to implement policies to prevent and correct harassment.

Organ said that he and his clients in all three suits have "very good" chances of winning in court.

A former Tesla employee is accusing Tesla of racial discrimination at its Fremont, California, factory.

Tesla chief executive officer Elon Musk has been dropping hints regarding its plans to produce heavy trucks which can compete directly with heavy diesel-powered vehicles.

He also added this photo to his instagram with a caption promoting the event where the new truck will be revealed.

The race to deliver electric trucks could eventually pose economic benefits to consumers if the technology lowers the price of transportation and reduces emissions that contribute to climate change. Vaughn worked in the Fremont factory from April 23 to Oct. 31. Our human resources team also conducts regular in-person spot training sessions when an allegation or complaint has been made, even if the evidence is not conclusive enough to warrant disciplinary action.

Publicly traded grocery chains include Kroger Co and Supervalu Inc, whose share prices are down more than one-third this year, and United Natural Foods Inc, which is down by nearly one-fifth.

Some have taken Musk's email to mean that his employees should forgive racist abuse from coworkers.

Heard admitted his split from Heard was so painful that it overshadowed the launch of his Model 3 car in July. "This doesn't mean there is a different standard of performance or that you can't give critical feedback". Diesel is "much cleaner today than it's ever been and it will be more energy efficient for many years into the future".
