Twitter was sued for Elon Musk’s proposal to fire off almost half of

its workers, Bloomberg reported on Friday, citing a class-action

complaint filed in a San Francisco federal court.

 

The complaint says that the corporation was eliminating workers without

giving adequate warning, in violation of the Worker Adjustment and Retraining

Notification (WARN) Act, a federal regulation that requires companies to give

early notice to employees impacted by plant closings and mass layoffs.

Twitter wants to start eliminating personnel Friday, the business stated in an

email to employees. Musk aims to get go of half the employees, making good

on vows to decrease expenses at the platform the purchased for $44 billion last month,

individuals with knowledge of the subject have said.

 

The federal Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act forbids major

corporations from initiating mass layoffs without at least 60 days of prior

notification.

The complaint seeks the court to impose an order compelling Twitter to

observe the WARN Act, and preventing the business from asking workers

to sign paperwork that potentially give up their ability to join in litigation.

Twitter Inc. was sued over Elon Musk’s intention to terminate nearly 3,700

employees at the social-media platform, which workers believe the business is

doing without appropriate notice in violation of federal and California law.

Twitter didn’t immediately react to a request for comment.

 

The complaint seeks the court to impose an order compelling Twitter to

observe the WARN Act, and preventing the business from asking workers to

sign paperwork that potentially give up their ability to join in litigation.

 

Liss-Riordan sued Tesla Inc. on identical claims in June when the electric-car

firm run by Musk lay off around 10% of its staff.

 

Tesla obtained an order from a federal judge in Austin requiring the

employees in that lawsuit to pursue their claims in closed-door arbitration

instead than in open court.

 

Musk labeled the Tesla case as “trivial” during a meeting with Bloomberg

Editor-In-Chief John Micklethwait at the Qatar Economic Forum in June.

 

“We will now see whether he is going to continue to thumb his nose at the

rules of this nation that protect employees,” Liss-Riordan said of Musk.

“It looks like he’s replicating the same script of what he did at Tesla.”

 

 

Twitter personnel are braced for a job massacre as Elon Musk seems ready to

eliminate 3,700 people across the globe after his spectacular $44billion

purchase.

 

Musk will be slashing about half of the workforce, with personnel at the social media

behemoth ready to know their destiny at 9 a.m. PST .

 

Those in the San Francisco building are impatiently waiting for an email with

the subject ‘Your Role at Twitter’ to land into their inboxes by 9 a.m. today,

while those in New York will find out their destinies at 12 p.m.

 

Staff in London and Manchester will get the news in the same manner,

at 4 p.m. local time in the UK, with many finding themselves locked out of their

accounts when they wake up.
