SpaceX accused of sexual harassment and discrimination in ex-workers’ suit | SpaceX | The Guardian
Former employees of SpaceX, Elon Musk’s aerospace company, have filed complaints of discrimination and sexual harassment, alleging a hostile work environment. Accusations include a culture where sexual harassment jokes were common, women were paid less, and complaints were met with dismissal. The allegations depict a sexist atmosphere, with Musk’s online humor influencing the workplace. One complaint highlighted Musk’s derogatory public statements towards marginalized groups on his Twitter account, which employees felt compelled to follow for work-related updates. Another employee cited a performance review criticizing her for being “too emotional” after raising concerns about credit for her work. SpaceX has faced legal action from a labor agency, accused of unlawfully firing employees who complained publicly. The company has sought to challenge these accusations in court, claiming procedural violations. This controversy parallels similar allegations against Musk’s other company, Tesla, suggesting broader issues within his enterprises regarding workplace conduct.
