U.S. District Judge James Donato in a three-page decision on Wednesday stated that Twitter must provide employees with “a brief and properly written notice” of the complaint before asking them to sign severance agreements surrendering their right to sue the business.
According to a federal court, Twitter must inform fired employees about a potential class-action lawsuit. According to the lawsuit, the corporation failed to provide sufficient notice before firing the employees. Following Elon Musk’s takeover of Twitter in early November, Twitter let go of about 3,700 workers. According to the lawsuit, Twitter did not provide the 60-day notice mandated by federal and Californian law.
The business had agreed to hold off on requesting the releases pending the judge’s ruling. In the same court, Twitter is facing three more proposed class actions related to the layoffs. The complaints allege that Twitter discriminates against women and employees with disabilities and fails to provide contract workers with notice before terminating them.
