Tesla notifies the government that it intends to eliminate 601 additional positions in California.

A letter to the government says Tesla wants to cut 601 more jobs in California.


San Francisco, California, May 14 As the carmaker begins a series of job layoffs throughout the world that began a month ago in response to declining sales and rising pricing competition, Tesla (TSLA.O) has announced that it is opening fresh doors and intends to lay off an additional 601 people in the state of California. The announcement was made in a notice of intent to the state government.

By the 15th of April, Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, said that the firm would be laying off more than ten percent of its worldwide staff, which had reached over one hundred forty thousand by the end of 2023. As a result of Musk’s desire to reduce the number of employees at the electric car manufacturer by twenty percent, the company has implemented many rounds of layoffs since then, according to individuals who are acquainted with the situation.

According to Tesla’s Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN), the most recent plan to lay off employees will commence during the 14 days commencing on June 20, 2024. The plan will have an impact on employees working at Tesla’s plants in Palo Alto and Fremont, both located in the state of California.

 As part of the staffing reductions, the electric vehicle manufacturer said last month that it will be laying off 6,020 employees in the states of California and Texas.

In addition, 285 people were laid off at the company’s facilities in Buffalo, New York, which are responsible for producing fast-charging equipment and housing the labeling team for the company’s Autopilot driving assistance program.

On April 30th, Musk decided to dismantle the Supercharger team that Tesla had.
