The decision comes as US media said that the employees of Twitter in United State raised lawsuit against social media giant Twitter, alleging that the company was violating federal and California law by planning to cut about 3,700 jobs without sufficient notice.
Bloomberg reported that the class action was filed Thursday in federal court in San Francisco.
The law requires an employer with more than 100 employees to provide 60 days’ advance written notice before a mass layoff, which affects 50 or more employees at a single workplace.
This comes after Twitter employees received an email from current CEO Elon Musk, informing them that there is an upcoming mass layoff.
“If your work is not affected, you will receive a notification via your Twitter email, and if your job is affected, you will receive a notification of next steps via your personal email,” said a copy of the email obtained by some media outlets.
The email added that to “help ensure the safety” of employees and Twitter systems, the company’s offices will be temporarily closed and access to all badges will be suspended. “
The email concluded by acknowledging that it will be an “incredibly challenging experience” for the workforce.
From Thursday night to Friday morning, dozens of Twitter employees began posting on the platform that they had already been banned from their company email accounts prior to the planned layoff notice.
