Tesla Inc. has been ordered by a federal jury to pay more than $130 million to Owen Diaz, a former elevator operator at the electric vehicle maker’s Fremont, California, factory.
The verdict condemns Tesla for failing to prevent other employees’ racial harassment of Mr. Diaz while on the job.
Mr. Diaz, represented by Alexander Morrison + Fehr LLP partner Bernard Alexander along with Larry Organ and Cimone Nunley from the California Civil Rights Law Group, was awarded this monumental verdict after repeatedly being called racial slurs by his co-workers and supervisors.
AM+F is proud to represent Mr. Diaz and other Californians like him who are seeking justice for workplace harassment and discrimination.
