    Twitter asks a US court to dismiss the lawsuit filed for the mass layoffs of Elon Musk

    Twitter has asked a federal court in California to throw out the lawsuit filed by more than 100 former employees of the company due to the “mass layoffs” that took place with the arrival of the new CEO Elon Musk.

    The lawyers for the social networking company have argued that the situation of the workers is not so similar and that, therefore, it does not meet the requirements to be considered as a class action, according to the ‘New York Post’.

    In addition, Twitter’s lawyers have argued that the allegations made are “vague and imprecise” and that the plaintiffs do not even attempt to define a class or range of employees, but refer to “other similarly situated Twitter workers,” according to one of the platform’s lawyers told the court.

    As stated by the aforementioned media, the group of employees who have filed the lawsuit includes both workers who have already been laid off and others whose situation will not be effective until the beginning of 2023. Therefore, they ask that the case be dismissed or transferred to a Delaware state court.

    “We are ready to fight them one by one, on behalf of potentially thousands of employees if that becomes necessary. Elon Musk is not above the law,” the lawyer representing the employees shared in a message quoted on Twitter. employees, Shannon Liss-Riordan.

    The lawsuits by former employees come after Twitter laid off almost half of its staff in November, following the acquisition of the company by Elon Musk. Later, the employer formalized hundreds more dismissals offering an ultimatum to do “extremely hard” work or leave the company.

    According to CNN, the former employees scored an early victory this December when a judge ruled in their favor, ordering the company to inform all fired employees of the ongoing lawsuit. That is, guarantee that workers are better informed before signing a dismissal agreement that includes the waiver of possible legal claims.
