Elon Musk argument for ending remote work at Tesla
Against the backdrop of several tech giants
billionaire Elon Musk's electric car maker Tesla
The determination came from Musk himself, who says that remote
work would no longer be acceptable past the worst of the
covid-19 pandemic. The new policy was shared via emails that leaked on social media.
Tesla did not respond to a request for comment on the
emails, one of which appeared to be directed at company executives.
Anyone who doesn't want to follow the new rules can "pretend they're working
somewhere else," Musk mocked on Twitter when asked about the company's new labor policy.
"Everyone at Tesla is expected to spend at least 40
hours a week in the office," one of the leaked emails said. "If you don't show up, let's assume you quit."
The emails said that employees should return to
work from one of the company's main offices, "not to a remote
branch that is unrelated to the job duties."
