Elon Musk Faces Legal Threat From Ex Twitter Employees

December 3, 2022

Twitter’s new boss Elon Musk has now faced a legal threat from one of his fired Twitter employees.

A lawyer for fired Twitter staff has given Musk a deadline of December 7 to confirm that he will pay them full severance as promised, or face an arbitration campaign to settle the dispute.

The laid-off Twitter staff lawyer sent a fiery letter to Elon Musk's lawyer, Alex Spiro.

Akiva Cohen — a partner at law firm Kamerman, Uncyk, Soniker & Klein — tweeted a copy of his letter which addresses Musk as the "Chief Twit."

His clients weren't receiving the severance package they had been promised, the lawyer said.

Cohen also accused the world's richest person of "attempting to tap-dance your way out of Twitter's binding obligations to its employees."

Since Musk took over the company, Twitter's workforce has fallen from 7,500 to 2,300, per Insider's Kali Hays.
