Rare Tesla Lawsuit Claims Elon Musk's Fremont Factory of Rampant Sexual Harassments
A rare Tesla lawsuit was filed by one of the company's employees at Fremont Factory. The female staff said that she had already experienced sexual harassment in the manufacturing plant, even though she had only spent months working in the area.
The lawsuit filer is a woman named Jessica Barraza. According to the Washington Post's latest report, the new lawsuit was filed on Thursday, Nov. 18.
The complainer claimed that the Tesla factory located in Fremont, California, has a toxic working environment, specifically affecting female employees.
Based on Barraza's statements, she usually experiences catcalling and even aggressive physical contact, which clearly makes her uncomfortable.
Rare Tesla Lawsuit Claims Rampant Sexual Harassments
Jessica said in her filed lawsuit that many male employees are making inappropriate statements about her. These include coke bottle physical appearance and onion figure and other descriptions, which could clearly affect women's feelings.
"After almost three years of experiencing all the harassment, it robs your sense of security - it almost dehumanizes you," said Barraza, who currently works as a Tesla Model 3 production associate.
Aside from the actual comments she heard in the Tesla Fremont factory, her supervisor also sent vulgar text messages. What makes this issue alarming is that all her harassers are usually her co-workers.
Based on her statements, it seems like Tesla has rampant sexual harassment activities within its workplace. If ever the lawsuit proves this is true, then Elon Musk clearly needs to step things up so that his female employees would be protected inside the factories.
