So, X, formerly known as Twitter, has finally settled its dispute with its former employees in Accra, Ghana.

Curious about the backstory? When Elon Musk took over Twitter in 2022, he downsized the workforce by over 6,000 employees worldwide. He promised the laid-off employees three months’ pay, but the African employees claimed they never received any compensation.

At that time, X’s African office in Accra had fewer than 20 employees and had recently transitioned to working from the office. Instead of receiving a month’s notice pay, they found themselves locked out of their emails and without their salaries.

Former Employees Threatened To Take Legal Action Against X

As a result, tensions escalated as the former employees threatened to take legal action against X for failing to provide their severance pay. It’s been over 14 months since the company terminated their employment in November 2022.

The Situation Has Now Been Resolved

However, the situation has been resolved thanks to Seven Seven, the agency representing the dismissed workers. They secured a redundancy payout and covered the expenses for any foreign employees who needed to return home. Finally, there’s some closure after enduring significant stress and financial strain for these individuals.

Other X-Related Issues

This settlement in Ghana follows a lawsuit filed against X in California by other former employees, who claimed they were owed at least $500 million in severance pay.
