    Tesla is being sued by a female engineer over allegations of sexism and harassment

    [​IMG]

    Tesla is the latest company accused of sexism in Silicon Valley after the seemingly rampant problem in the tech industry came back into light last week following similar allegations at Uber.

      I would think it has to help. Tesla can't say that she was let go for performance reasons & is just trying to get back at the company for letting her go.

        Yeah thats what I was thinking. If I had major issues at an employer I probably would leave if HR didn't fix it. The Tesla reply sounds like they took it very seriously and did what they could.
