Tesla not being upfront with the truth and trying to cover things up? No way! That'd be completely ludicrous, like requiring early owners of "delivered" vehicles to sign an iron clad NDA that prevents them from posting anything negative on social media, not being able to sell their car for more than list price, threatening disabling the car if it is sold-----nevermind, totally Tesla. :rolleyes:

That was my suggestion/guess when the stories about the mass layoffs came out. Mass layoffs due to "annual performance reviews" simply don't happen, if for no reason that annual performance reviews don't ordinarily happen at the same time due to a host of reasons. More likely trying to come up with a good story for what I'm expecting to be a horrible quarter financially (no inside info just from the behavior and the fact things are obviously not going according to schedule).

Whenever anything from Electrek is posted, there should be a disclaimer that it's something of a paid shill for Tesla. Not terribly credible.

Plenty of companies do annual reviews all at the same time. I don't know about Tesla, but my company certainly does.

Many companies do annual performance reviews around the same time. What's less common is the mass layoff of hundreds of people as a result of those reviews.

In any event, I don't think it's a criminal matter. Might be a civil case though.

Tesla recently fired hundreds of employees. Tesla said they were for "poor performance". However, in recent press articles quoting some of the fired employees, there are claims employees were called by phone or emailed not to return to work. No exit interviews explaining Tesla's decision were conducted. Prior performance reviews were glowing. So what happened to change Tesla's perception?

The terminations have now spread to Solar City where at least 200 more employees have been let go. CNBC today is reporting many of those employees were equally blindsided. The firings have now triggered a protest in Fremont.

Tesla cites performance reviews as it fires SolarCity employees, though workers say reviews never took place

I guess they are enforcing the work at will clause in California Law...in mass quantities...:rolleyes:
