Report: Elon Musk tells Tesla employees return to the office or leave

(Bob Daemmrich)

Tesla CEO Elon Musk is hitting the brakes on work from home.

On Tuesday, Musk reportedly sent an email to Tesla executive staff saying remote work is no longer acceptable, according to multiple reports. This comes as tech companies carry on with return to the office plans, like at Apple where plans requiring staff to be in the office three days a week were delayed due to a spike of COVID-19 cases.

In Musk’s message to workers, he apparently said “anyone who wishes to do remote work must be in the office for a minimum (and I mean *minimum*) of 40 hours per week or depart Tesla. This is less than we ask of factory workers.”

Musk hasn’t confirmed the email, but he has publicly noted his stance. In a response tweet to someone asking for comment on people who think coming into work is an antiquated concept, Musk replied “they should pretend to work somewhere else.”
