Elon Musk: Tesla telecommuters ‘should pretend to work somewhere else’

Tesla employees ‘should pretend to work somewhere else’ if they don’t want to return to their offices, CEO Elon Musk says tweeted Wednesday.

Why is this important: Many companies across the country have adopted remote work policies, while others are pushing for employees to return to the office.

Driving the news: “Anyone who wants to work remotely must be in the office for a minimum (and I mean *minimum*) of 40 hours per week or leave Tesla. That’s less than what we’re asking of factory workers,” Musk wrote in a leaked memo to staff, according to Bloomberg.

  • Office workers must work at “a main Tesla office, not a remote branch office unrelated to work duties,” Musk allegedly wrote in the memo, which TSTIME has not independently verified.
  • As an example, he said someone “responsible for human relations at the Fremont plant” shouldn’t have “your office in another state.”
  • Musk will “review and approve” any situations where employees cannot meet minimum hours, Reuters reports.

The plot: Musk has made an offer to buy Twitter, which currently has a different remote work policy.

  • Parag Agrawal, CEO of Twitter said in March that the Twitter office would open, but employees can still work remotely if they choose.
  • “It’s where you’ll feel most productive and creative that you’ll be working, and that includes working from home full-time forever,” Agrawal tweeted.
