Tesla Hit by Class-Action Lawsuit Claiming Racial Discrimination

Overloaded with such allegations and lawsuits, Tesla is prepping to launch its semi truck on Thursday of this week. The lawsuit alleges no one from the company followed up with Vaughn about his complaint, nor did they investigate his claims.
Vaughn was sacked in October for "not having a positive attitude" and alleges in the lawsuit that he was called "n****r" repeatedly by supervisors and coworkers.
Vaughn's lawsuit is seeking class-action status and unspecified damages under California's anti-discrimination law.
Tesla has 33,000 employees worldwide, and approximately 10,000 of them work at the Fremont, Calif. assembly plant, according to Bloomberg News.
The company rejected the claims and stated the decision was based on worker performance reviews. He also claimed he was passed over for promotions because he complained to HR, according to Business Insider.
The lawsuit was filed on behalf of Marcus Vaughn, who worked in the Fremont factory from 23 April to 31 October.
The complaint, Vaughn v. Tesla Inc.in the Superior Court of California, alleges that Tesla workers, including supervisors, regularly used derogatory and discriminatory language against black workers.
In February, Tesla CEO Elon Musk informed the website Gizmodo that a staff member who wrote a post slamming the company was "paid by the UAW to join Tesla and agitate for a union".
Trump lands in Philippines, final stop in Asia
When the reporters asked Trump whether he would raise human rights at the meeting, Duterte replied with: "Whoa, whoa". Human Rights Watch said that even children are being targeted and described the issue as a "new level of depravity".
A Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) employee sued the company over racial harassment stating that over 100 employees are experiencing the same at the workplace, according to Bloomberg.
"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.
Vaughn then reached out to Larry Organ, an attorney at the California Civil Rights Law Group, after the law firm sued Tesla earlier this year when other former employees complained about racial harassment this year. "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". "Tesla is not doing enough. 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.
In addition to the growing number of lawsuits the company is facing, a unionization campaign by United Auto Workers is underway.
