New Lawsuit Claims Elon Musk’s Twitter Layoffs Targeted Women


 The latest lawsuit filed by former Twitter employees alleges that Elon Musk’s company disproportionately targeted women in its recent layoffs that affected roughly half of the platform’s workforce, and that female staff “had targets on their backs.”

The lawsuit is the latest in a string of legal actions taken by former Twitter employees since the rampant layoffs. Last month, another employee who was fired filed a suit claiming that Musk’s demands that workers “be extremely hardcore” and “work long hours at high intensity” in order to stay at the company forced disabled workers to resign. Other lawsuits claim laid-off workers were not given legally required advance notice and did not receive the severance packages the company promised.

Twitter has faced a series of challenges since Musk’s acquisition. Earlier this week, it came to light that makeshift bedrooms had been set up in conference rooms at Twitter’s San Francisco headquarters, the apparent manifestation of Musk’s “extremely hardcore” work philosophy. San Francisco’s Department of Building Inspection is investigating the complaint. In response, Musk asked in a tweet why the city “attacks companies for providing beds for tired employees instead of making sure kids are safe from fentanyl.” Twitter last week reportedly launched an aggressive campaign to recoup lost advertising dollars since Musk took over.
