Klage gegen Twitter, weil mehr Frauen als Männer entlassen worden sein sollen

Anscheinend gibt es eine Klage gegen Twitter, weil sie mehr Frauen als Männer entlassen haben sollen:

After Elon Musk’s $44 billion acquisition of Twitter, one of the major news about the social platform was layoffs after layoffs. Now, Twitter got hit by a class action lawsuit for targeting female employees.

The proposed lawsuit says the layoffs included 57% of total females and only 47% of total men, but the new lawsuit brings the number up to 63% of women and 48% of men.

The lawsuit was filed by two women who were laid off in November and accused the company of sex discrimination. The lawsuit alleges that Twitter broke federal and California laws.

One of the plaintiffs‘ lawyers, Shannon Liss-Riordan, said that Musk had intentionally targeted women without regard for their contributions and talent. She said women were targeted when the new Twitter CEO bought the company.

To add to the case, Twitter was alleged to let go of employees and contractors without legally required advance notice and did not pay the promised severance.

In early November, Twitter laid off about 3,700 employees, with hundreds more resigning after Musk’s previous call to „hardcore“ work. The new Twitter CEO gave employees an ultimatum to commit to long work hours at high intensity, per WP.

Musk: „This will mean working long hours at high intensity.“

The new Twitter CEO’s intense hours were alleged as discrimination to disabled workers.

Könnte aus meiner Sicht eine interessante Klage werden, wobei ich nicht unbedingt glaube, dass sie Erfolg haben wird. Immerhin dürften Frauen und Männer auch in ganz unterschiedlichen Bereichen gearbeitet haben und es kann sicherlich dargestellt werden, dass man eben in diesen Abteilungen mehr Leute entlassen hat und dafür mehr technische Leute behalten hat.
Es wäre aber auch interessant, wenn Frauen weitaus eher die Aussicht auf „hardcore work“ abgeschreckt hätte.
