Two workers, Carlos Gabriel and Jessica Naro, say that they received termination notices from Tesla last week after taking unpaid time off in an effort to avoid the coronavirus. The San Jose Mercury News first reported Gabriel’s termination notice last week.
Both workers say that they were contacted this week by Tesla’s HR department. Naro was given the opportunity to come back to work if she committed to a return date. She declined because her 6-year-old son has a health condition that puts him at heightened risk.
Gabriel ended his call after the Tesla rep refused to allow him to record it. He hasn’t heard back since and believes he is no longer on Tesla’s payroll.Read 8 remaining paragraphs | Comments
