The American multinational automotive and clean energy company Tesla is believed to have directed employees not to discuss salary and working conditions, and has thus been accused in violation of US labour laws.
The maker of electric vehicles is accused of ordering its staff members not to bring complaints about their salary or other working conditions to the attention of senior managers. The staff are also requested not to talk about their salaries with others.
The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has been notified of the complaint. These incidents allegedly occurred between December 2021 and January 2022, according to the complaint. Additionally, it is said that Tesla has instructed its staff to keep hiring, suspending, and firing decisions confidential.
The firing of two US-based Telsa employees who complained to the NLRB that they were wrongfully terminated for criticising Musk shows that the company does not appreciate criticism of Musk.
According to other reports, two female employees of Twitter filed a class-action lawsuit against the company accusing it of breaching federal and state of California laws that forbid gender discrimination at work.
57% of female employees have been let go by Musk, compared to 47% of male employees. Other grievances against Twitter have also been filed with the NLRB.
