Elon Musk’s rapid changes at Twitter could raise legal concerns, experts say

As Elon Musk continues his swift changes across Twitter lawyers and employment experts said his demands could open up legal issues.

As Elon Musk continues his swift and sweeping changes across Twitter — including mass layoffs and requiring remaining employees to commit to "long hours” or leave — lawyers and employment experts said his demands could open up the billionaire and his company to a number of legal issues.

In a companywide ultimatum sent Wednesday morning, Twitter gave employees a deadline of 5 p.m. on Thursday to decide if they want to stay, demanding they commit to working “long hours at high intensity” or receive “three months of severance,” if they did not consent to the conditions, or support his vision for “Twitter 2.0.”

It was the latest in a number of broad changes Musk has announced since he took over Twitter on Oct. 28. 

Musk has already fired key Twitter executives, laid off half of Twitter’s 7,500-person payroll, and slashed the number of contractors working with the company without notice. This week, he also fired veteran engineers at Twitter after they criticized him in public or in the company’s internal Slack channels.

Twitter did not immediately respond to request for comment on potential legal concerns.
