X Acused of Illegally Firing Employee Who Criticized Elon’s Return to Work Plan
Following Elon Musk’s acquisition of the company in October and his threat to dismiss employees who didn’t return to in-person office work, the complaint stems from the firing of Yao Yue. She had encouraged her colleagues on the company’s Slack platform to let the company terminate them instead of quitting, and as a result, she was fired for violating an unspecified company policy.
In the complaint, the NLRB accuses X of preventing workers from exercising their legal labor rights. Yao Yue claims that her termination was in retaliation for her efforts to organize her co-workers not to resign, with the goal of providing them a stronger legal basis for challenging the company later.
In July, former employees of X filed a fresh lawsuit, this time regarding the company’s purported refusal to cover the costs of arbitration, despite a judge’s earlier ruling in January that determined they were contractually obligated to use arbitration. The judge’s decision had paused their class-action lawsuit, which alleged that X had failed to provide the employees with adequate notice as required by both federal and California state laws. X had initiated significant layoffs of its workforce starting in November of the previous year.
