Investors are now going after Tesla execs for what employees have long complained about: a “toxic workplace culture.”
“A Tesla Inc shareholder sued the electric car maker, Chief Executive Elon Musk and its board, accusing them of neglecting to tackle complaints about workplace discrimination and harassment, and engendering a “toxic workplace culture.”
Thursday’s lawsuit is the latest against Tesla, which has been accused of racial discrimination and sexual harassment in its factories.
“Tesla has created a toxic workplace culture grounded in racist and sexist abuse and discrimination against its own employees,” the investor, Solomon Chau, said.
“This toxic work environment has gestated internally for years, and only recently has the truth about Tesla’s culture emerged,” he added in the complaint.
“Tesla’s toxic workplace culture has caused financial harm and irreparable damage to the company’s reputation.”
