The email sent to Tesla executives additionally pointed out pausing “all hiring worldwide”. Until now, Musk or Tesla didn’t officially confirm details related to layoffs.

Tesla employees are truely going thru a difficult time. Besides the upcoming layoffs, Musk recently asked all Tesla employees to work from office.

He clearly mentioned that people who do not follow office guidelines can quit. He also made working 40 hours a week mandatory for Tesla employees.

In another recent email written under the subject line, “remote work is no longer acceptable”, Musk noted,

anyone who wishes to do remote work must be in the office for a minimum (and I mean *minimum*) of 40 hours per week or leave Tesla.”

Last year, when Jack Dorsey became the CEO, Twitter allowed employees work from home or wherever they wanted.

With Musk becoming the boss soon, it could be possible that most Twitter employees will return to the office and leave the comfort and flexibility of working from home.

Additionally, during the meeting, Musk hinted at layoffs at Twitter. He stated that the microblogging site “wishes to get healthy” financially and bring the cost down.

The billionaire also brought that “anyone who is a signification contributor has nothing to worry about.”
