Breaking: Elon Musk’s Twitter Faces Class Action Lawsuit For Mass Layoffs

A class-action lawsuit was filed against Twitter due to Elon Musk’s decision to layoff 3,700 employees. According to the lawsuit filed in a San Francisco federal court, Twitter employees were not given prior notice and were notified about the layoff in an email yesterday. Employees assert Twitter violated federal and California law.

As per the federal Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act, large companies are restricted from making mass layoffs without giving at least 60 days advance notice.

“Twitter is now engaged in conducting mass layoffs without providing the required notice under the federal WARN Act.”

Moreover, the lawsuit requests the court to issue an order making Twitter follow the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act. It also asks the court to restrict the company from demanding or making employees sign documents to withdraw from participating in litigation.

Those who are staying at Twitter will be notified today in their work email. Whereas, those on the layoff list will get an email to their personal address.
