Tesla to pay $130 mn to Black ex-US worker over racism

Tesla has been ordered to pay over $130 million in damages to a Black former US worker, Owen Diaz, for failing to prevent him from being racially harassed, the Wall Street Journal reported. Before the US court trial, Tesla had sought to exclude one juror from the jury, which the presiding judge believed was based on race and “purposefully discriminatory”.

In a message to employees that Tesla posted on its website, the automaker noted the trial concerned racial slurs heard on the factory floor and racist graffiti in the bathrooms. It also said the three times that Diaz complained about harassment, Tesla stepped in and made sure action was taken by staffing agencies.
