Twitter Sued Mass Layoff Elon Musk Lawsuit San Fransisco Federal Court Job Cuts

A class-action lawsuit was filed against micro-blogging platform Twitter over new chief Elon Musk’s decision of mass layoffs at the company that starts today (Friday, November 4). A lawsuit was filed at a San Fransisco federal court against Twitter as the company plans to cut as many as 3,700 jobs under Musk, which workers say the company is doing without enough notice in violation of California and federal law, says a report by news agency Bloomberg.

Twitter will tell employees by email on Friday about whether they have been laid off, temporarily closing its offices and preventing staff access, following a week of uncertainty about Twitter’s future under the new boss, according to a report by news agency Reuters. Twitter said in an email to staff that it will inform its staffers by 9 am Pacific time on Friday (12 pm EDT/9:30 pm IST) about the job cuts.

Musk has announced and indicated plans to bring about drastic changes to and at Twitter, including charging $8 per month for the blue verification tick in front of a user’s name that authenticates the individual or company on the social media platform.

Meanwhile, in bad news for banned accounts on Twitter, Musk, the new boss of the company has said that the platform will not reinstate such accounts without a “clear process”. The accounts that were banned by Twitter at least for another few weeks, according to Twitter’s new owner. Musk previously said that the micro-blogging platform should not permanently ban users and that he would reverse the ban on former US president Donald Trump.

“Twitter will not allow anyone who was de-platformed for violating Twitter rules back on platform until we have a clear process for doing so, which will take at least a few more weeks,” Musk tweeted on Wednesday.

Musk followed up with another tweet that noted that a “clear process” may entail. “Twitter’s content moderation council will include representatives with widely divergent views, which will certainly include the civil rights community and groups who face hate-fueled violence,” Musk tweeted.
