California Agency Sues Tesla over Alleged Discrimination Against Black Workers

California Agency Sues Tesla over Alleged Discrimination Against Black Workers

The Index Today

The Wall Street Journal reported that a California state agency on Wednesday filed a lawsuit accusing Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) Inc of tolerating discrimination against Black workers in their assembly plant, mirroring claims in several other pending cases against the giant electric-car maker.


According to the report, California's Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) filed a lawsuit in state court which targets alleged workplace issues at Tesla's Fremont factory.

The agency found evidence that the factory is a "racially segregated workplace" where Black workers are subjected to racial slurs and discriminated against in job assignments, discipline, pay, creating a hostile work environment, the report said, citing a statement by DFEH director Kevin Kish.

Tesla had on Wednesday said the DFEH was planning to file a lawsuit against the company alleging systematic racial discrimination and harassment.

And currently, Tesla and the DFEH did not immediately respond to Reuters requests for a comment.
