According to attorney Shannon Liss-Riordan, Elon Musk has “worked every day to find new and creative ways to screw over the company’s workers.” Liss-Riordan has filed a class action alleging Twitter failed to give employees due notice of layoffs, and an emergency motion to protect employees from signing away their rights. The motion would prevent Twitter from seeking severance agreements from laid-off employees. She also filed an amended complaint alleging that Musk went back on the promises that Twitter made to employees regarding their severance package and remote working arrangements. Musk has fired about half the company’s staff, about 3,700 people, since acquiring the company. In his first email to employees he wrote that the company will no longer allow remote work, and gave workers one day to get back to the office “for a minimum of 40 hours per week.”
