Monday's lawsuit, filed by former Tesla employee Marcus Vaughn, said Vaughn was routinely called the "n-word" by supervisors and coworkers after he began working at the factory in April. He says he complained in writing to human resources officials, but those complaints were never investigated.

Vaughn says he was fired in October for "not having a positive attitude." The lawsuit seeks class-action status and unspecified damages under California anti-discrimination law.




Tesla representatives didn't respond to a request for comment Tuesday but said in a company blog post Wednesday that several months ago it fired three employees after investigating "disappointing behavior" involving individuals who worked with or near Vaughn.

"At the time, our investigation identified a number of conflicting accusations and counter-accusations between several African-American and Hispanic individuals, alleging use of racial language, including the 'n-word' and 'w-word,' towards each other and a threat of violence," the company said in its statement. "After a thorough investigation, immediate action was taken, which included terminating the employment of three of the individuals


what is up with that?

I can't say because we don't know if the accusations are true or, if true, how many people knew about it or engaged in it. If this isn't just a few bad apples and instead is the general culture there then it would seem that it is.

Would you say it is?

Tesla will be bought out soon by a global manufacturer like Mercedes and then it's off to the races to make electric cars the preferred automobile.

He was a temporary employee, through a staffing agency. His contract wasn't renewed. That's not being fired.

Tesla Motors is being accused of allowing its California production plant to become a "hotbed for racist behavior."

A racial discrimination lawsuit, filed Monday in California Superior Court in Oakland, said black employees were addressed by racial slurs and company management ignored their complaints. The lawsuit is at least the third filed this year against Tesla alleging racial discrimination at its Fremont, California, factory.

Monday's lawsuit, filed by former Tesla employee Marcus Vaughn, said Vaughn was routinely called the "n-word" by supervisors and coworkers after he began working at the factory in April. He says he complained in writing to human resources officials, but those complaints were never investigated.

Vaughn says he was fired in October for "not having a positive attitude." The lawsuit seeks class-action status and unspecified damages under California anti-discrimination law.

Tesla also said that Vaughn wasn't fired as stated in the lawsuit, but rather was a temporary employees whose contract wasn't renewed.


The lawsuit is the latest in a growing number of lawsuits accusing Tesla of discrimination. In March, another black employee sued the automaker, alleging he was sexually harassed, racially harassed and racially discriminated against at the Fremont facility. A trio of former employees made similar claims in a lawsuit filed against the company in October.


now then, are you saying that it's ok to call Vaughn the N word if he's a temporary employee, whose contract wasn't renewed?

and did you notice that this isn't the FIRST DISCRIMINATION lawsuit?

Different Groups of minority workers not getting along in the workplace. It doesn’t surprise me to see that in ur racially charged society. Hard to know who is at fault or if the allegations are completely truthful.

Sounds like a bunch of little boys using bad language. W words, N words... between black and hispanics is surprising? IMHO, there's no discrimination here, just little boys who can't play in the same sandbox.

I'm not the least bit surprised at your answer. if this were a Trump company, you and evillib would be all over this. like the article said this isn't the FIRST discrimination lawsuit. if it were, I'd be more willing to go along with the feeble sandbox theory.

but I'm sure that's the best you have.
