Elon Musk tells Tesla workers to return to the office full time or resign

Tesla Chief Executive Elon Musk has asked employees to return to the office or leave the company.

According to an email sent to employees on Tuesday night, it stated, “Everyone at Tesla is required to spend a minimum of 40 hours in the office per week.”

“If you don’t show up, we will assume you have resigned,” it further added.

Two Tesla sources confirmed the authenticity of the email reviewed by Reuters. Tesla did not respond to a request for comment.

One of Musk’s Twitter followers posted another email that Musk apparently sent to executives asking them to work in the office for at least 40 hours per week or “depart Tesla.”

In response to this tweet, the billionaire, who has agreed to take Twitter Inc private in a $44 billion deal, said, “They should pretend to work somewhere else.” Musk himself could not be reached for comment.

Some tech workers have been resisting efforts to get them to return to work in California, home to one of Tesla’s factories and its engineering base, in the face of a resurgence of coronavirus cases.
