Twitter's Mass Layoffs Prompt Lawsuit
The suits claims mass layoffs violate federal law requiring notice
A class-action lawsuit was reportedly filed against Twitter on Thursday on behalf of workers claiming the company's intended layoffs violate a federal law requiring 60 days' notice for employees.
A week after Elon Musk finalized his $44 billion purchase of the Silicon Valley-based social media platform, a letter went out to employees saying about half of the company's 7,500-person workforce will be losing their jobs starting Friday.
"Team, in an effort to place Twitter on a healthy path, we will go through the difficult process of reducing our global workforce on Friday," Thursday's email to employees read, according to The Washington Post. "We recognize that this will impact a number of individuals who have made valuable contributions to Twitter, but this action is unfortunately necessary to ensure the company’s success moving forward."
