Employees who joined Tesla only a few months ago are apparently being let go, and job offers are reportedly being rescinded.
According to Business Insider, many employees affected by these changes have used social media to discuss their experiences with lost employment and withdrew job offers.
An executive told Insider that he believed his career was secure.
Tesla said that the dismissals were motivated by performance appraisals, but the employee disputed this.
The unnamed worker claimed, “I had only been at Tesla for a few months and had yet to have performance goals or a performance review.
He continued by saying that the business kept their decision’s rationale a secret from him.
According to Musk, Tesla will reduce its salaried workforce by 10% over the next three months.
Since Elon Musk’s economic warning, Tesla has reduced job opportunities.
An intern who had spent a year working for the tech giant reported that his offer of a permanent job had been withdrawn.
The company was even sued by two employees, according to Insider, for “laying off hundreds of employees on short notice”.
According to Elon Musk, the Tesla plants were losing “billions of dollars” on Wednesday.
