According to a leaked memo, Elon Musk has urged Tesla employees to return to the office or leave the company.
“Anyone who wants to work remotely has to be in the office at least (and I mean at least) 40 hours a week or travel away tesla,‘ the CEO said in the message to employees that was circulated on social media.
Although the authenticity of the memo has not been verified and the electric car company is yet to give an official response to inquiries about it, musk responded to a Twitter user who asked him for “an additional comment for people who think it’s an antiquated concept of coming to work?”
“They should pretend they work somewhere else,” the billionaire tycoon replied.
According to the memo, Musk would “review and approve” any cases where workers could not meet the minimum.
Tesla joins a string of companies calling for employees to return to the office.
While some large employers have made voluntary work-from-home policies permanent, others, including Alphabet’s Google, are choosing to push face-to-face interactions between colleagues.
Twitter boss Parag Agrawal tweeted in March that the social media company’s offices would reopen but employees could continue to work from home if they wished.
“You will work where you feel most productive and creative, and that includes working full-time from home forever,” he said.
It comes after Musk made an offer in April to take Twitter private in a $44bn (£35bn) deal.
