Tesla ordered to pay former employee $137M over racism
TRT World says a California verdict ordering Tesla to pay a Black former employee $137 million in damages for turning a blind eye to racism the man encountered at the firm’s Silicon Valley auto plant is a resounding message to corporate America in the eyes of his attorney.
“They awarded an amount that could be a wake-up call for American corporations,” civil rights attorney Larry Organ told AFP on Tuesday.
“Don’t engage in racist conduct and don’t allow racist conduct to continue.”
