No More WFH: Elon Musk Wants Tesla Employees To Return To Office Or Quit, Email Goes Viral

But Tesla and SpaceX owner Elon Musk is pretty much done with his employees working remotely. Hence, now, he wants them to return to the office or choose to stay at home permanently but without a job, reported India Today.

Via an email, the business magnate informed his staff that remote work is no longer acceptable at Tesla. In the screengrab of the email that got leaked online, Musk is seen clarifying that employees must be at the office for a minimum of 40 hours or depart Tesla.

“If there are particularly exceptional contributors for whom this is impossible, I will review and approve those exceptions directly.”

“Moreover, the ‘office’ must be a main Tesla office, not a remote branch office unrelated to the job duties, for example being responsible for Fremont factory human relations, but having your office be in another state,” the email with the subject line “remote work is no longer acceptable” concluded.

Even though he didn’t legitimate the authenticity of the email, Elon did respond to a tweet that enquired ‘What about those who think coming to work is an antiquated concept?’

“They should pretend to work somewhere else,” the Tesla CEO responded.

He is pretty clear and sounds adamant too. Let’s see what people online think of his decision.

It was a mixed bag of reactions. Work from home or work from the office, which side are you on?
