Elon Musk says in a leaked email: All Tesla employees must return to office or leave company
Tesla CEO Elon Musk has asked the company employees to either return to the office or leave the company, according to a leaked email sent to Tesla staff that has been making its rounds on the internet,
In an email from Elon Musk sent on Tuesday titled “Remote work is no longer acceptable,” Musk said only in extreme cases where this was deemed impossible would he personally decide whether to reconsider his decree.
“Anyone who wishes to do remote work must be in the office for a minimum (and I mean *minimum*) of 40 hours per week or depart Tesla,” he wrote in an email shared by Tesla shareholder Sam Nissim.

Tesla did not respond to a request for comment. Musk could not be reached for comment. In response to the memo that was tweeted from an unverified account, Musk said, “They should pretend to work somewhere else.” Musk would “review and approve” any cases where they could not meet the minimum, according to the memo.
Musk also added that it wasn’t sufficient to clock in at just any Tesla site; it had to be one that aligned with one’s assigned duties.
