Several laid-off Twitter employees were informed by a recent ruling in their proposed class action lawsuit that they must pursue their claims via individual arbitration instead. The lawsuit claims that the employees were not adequately notified of the layoff after Elon Musk purchased Twitter. The lawsuit further alleges they did not receive their entire severance package and some claim sex or disability discrimination.
Three former employees allege they opted out of the company’s arbitration agreement. Therefore, the court left the option open for a potential class action lawsuit for those that opted out.
