Elon Musk Demands Tesla Employees Return to Offices or Quit

Elon Musk exige a los empleados de Tesla volver a las oficinas o renunciar

[Leer en español]

Tesla CEO Elon Musk has sent a letter to Tesla employees—circulating on social media today—demanding that they return to in-person work or leave the company.

For the moment, neither the company nor Musk himself have confirmed the existence of the letter, but to a question in this regard via Twitter, Musk seemed to validate it by responding thus to a user: “They should pretend to work somewhere else,” he said.

The letter circulating today and bearing “Elon” signature reads, “Anyone who wishes to do remote work must be in the office for a minimum (and I mean ‘minimum’) of 40 hours per week or depart Tesla. This is less than we ask of factory workers.”

In that mail, it also notes that exceptional circumstances would be considered and reviewed directly by Musk.

“Moreover, the office must be a main Tesla office, not a remote branch office,” the leaked email reads.

Tesla had, at the end of 2020, a workforce of just over 70,000 on U.S. soil.
