Women humiliated for “objects”?
Employee is suing Tesla for sexism
A few weeks ago, American electric car maker Tesla made negative headlines due to racist incidents at a plant in California. Now an employee continues to report sexual harassment at the same factory. She is suing her employer and seeking higher compensation.
An employee has sued the US electric car maker after he and his associates say he repeatedly faced sexual harassment while working at a Tesla plant in California. From the outset, she worked in a bad environment at the Tesla plant in Fremont, according to the lawsuit filed by Jessica Barazza, but despite her complaints, management did nothing about it.
Barazza said Tesla’s public assurances to “promote a safe and respectful environment for its employees” are only a mask. At the plant in Fremont, the women had experienced a different reality: for three years, their partners were humiliated for “objects” every day by their partners and sometimes by their superiors, and were “groped and groped”. on” was turned on.
Though he complained several times to senior officials and a representative of the Human Resources Department, nothing happened. On the contrary, she feels that she has been the victim of vengeance. Among other things, he was transferred following a complaint.
Employee doesn’t just want money
The 38-year-old is currently on sick leave due to post-traumatic stress disorder. In addition to paying higher compensation, she wants Tesla to be obligated to take action against sexual harassment with training, control and disciplinary measures.
The group initially left a request for an unanswered statement. This isn’t the first time Tesla’s Fremont plant has been infamous. In early October, a San Francisco court sentenced the electric car maker to pay $137 million in damages to an African-American worker for racist incidents at the plant. Even in this case, Tesla reportedly took no action against the insult, despite reports.
