Tesla loses «racist harassment» lawsuit: Will pay $ 3.2 million to ex-employee – Last Minute World News

A US court found that Owen Diaz, who worked as an elevator operator at the Fremont, California factory between 2015 and 2016, was exposed to a racially hostile work environment.

It was decided to pay Diaz 3 million dollars (approximately 58 million Turkish Liras) in non-pecuniary damages and 175 thousand dollars (approximately 3.5 million Turkish Liras) compensation for emotional damages.


Tesla Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Elon Musk said in a statement on Twitter that he «respects the decision», stating that the result was due to the company not being allowed to present new evidence.

Musk did not provide details of the new evidence Tesla will present.

Claiming in her lawsuit that black workers regularly encounter racist insults on factory walls and racist graffiti in bathrooms, Diaz stated that a worker hears racist insults «50-100 times a day».

The court decided to pay Diaz $137 million in damages in 2021, but Tesla appealed the decision.

Last year, a judge ruled that the amount was excessive.
