Tesla Faces 3rd Lawsuit Alleging Racial Harassment By Fellow Employees

Tesla Faces 3rd Lawsuit Alleging Racial Harassment By Fellow Employees”

"Although Tesla stands out as a groundbreaking company at the forefront of the electric car revolution, its standard operating procedure at the Tesla factory is pre-Civil Rights era race discrimination", the employee said in the complaint, filed Monday in California's Alameda County Superior Court.

A former Tesla employee is seeking permission from a judge to sue Tesla for racial harassment on behalf of 100 affected African-American workers, according to Bloomberg Technology.

"The law doesn't require you to have a thick skin", said Larry Organ, an attorney at the California Civil Rights Law Group, who was contacted by Vaughn after the law firm sued Tesla on behalf of other African-American employees who complained about racial harassment. He added, he complained in writing to human resources and Musk and was terminated in late October for "not having a positive attitude".

In February, Tesla chief executive Elon Musk told the website Gizmodo that an employee who wrote a blog post criticizing the company was 'paid by the UAW to join Tesla and agitate for a union'. "Sometimes these things happen unintentionally, in which case you should apologise". "In fairness, if someone is a jerk to you, but sincerely apologises, it is important to be thick-skinned and accept the apology".

A representative for Musk did not immediately respond to TheWrap's request for comment. Demetric Diaz, one of the three complainants, believes he was fired for reporting the incidents to his supervisor.

Based on the negative impression those who own and drive Tesla cars have after spending time with the Tesla Model 3, it is no longer any mystery why the motor press have not been given cars to test and evaluate.

A trio of former employees made similar claims in a lawsuit filed against the company in October.

The company is also facing lawsuits accusing it of discrimination against gay and older workers.

The plaintiffs also allege that supervisors and employees left racist images and caricatures around the plant for the black employees to see. "It's somewhat akin to saying 'stop being politically correct.' When you have a diverse workforce, you need to take steps to make sure everyone feels welcome in that workforce", he explained. On the International Securities Exchange (ISE), Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE), and NASDAQ OMX PHLX (PHLX), the stock's 50-day call/put volume ratio of 1.18 is higher than 76% of all other readings from the past year.
