Billionaire Elon Musk has ordered Tesla employees to return to the office, telling workers they must be in the office at least 40 hours a week — or quit.

The famous entrepreneur’s demands were revealed after an email he sent this week was leaked on social media.

Musk, 50, says the company will assume anyone not showing up in the office has “resigned.”

In an email to employees, he wrote: “Anyone who wants to work remotely has to be in the office at least (and I mean *minimum*) 40 hours a week or leave Tesla.

“That’s less than what we ask factory workers to do.

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

“Furthermore, the ‘office’ must be a Tesla headquarters, not a remote branch unrelated to job duties, e.g.

In a follow-up email to staff entitled “to be super clear,” the business magnate said people shouldn’t work in a “pseudo office,” adding, “If you don’t show up, we’re assuming that you have resigned. “

The second email continued: “The older you are, the more visible your presence needs to be.

“That’s why I lived in the factory so much – so the people on the line could see me working alongside them.

“If I hadn’t done that, Tesla would have gone bankrupt long ago.

“Of course there are companies that don’t require this, but when was the last time you shipped a great new product? It has been a while.

“Tesla has and will continue to design and actually manufacture the most exciting and meaningful products of any company on earth.

“That won’t happen by calling it.”

When asked about the leaked emails on Twitter, in which a user asked about workers who thought remote work was an “antiquated concept,” Musk replied, “They should pretend they work somewhere else.”

Musk said on Twitter that people who like the concept of working from home should “pretend they work somewhere else.”



He said he will review and approve any cases where staff are unable to meet the minimum hours.

But many social media users weren’t impressed with Musk’s plans to haul the workers back to the office.

One user wrote: “My ancestors literally fought and died for a 40 hour week. I refuse to tarnish their memory by working more than that.”

While another added, “Remarkable ‘hard worker’ reflects on how people aren’t born rich.”

Twitter user Grady Booch said: “Another reason I would never want to work for you, nor would I recommend any of my colleagues to work for you.”

Another person added: “You will alienate talent. If the other company offers remote, the most marketable people will go there.

“The people who settle for bullies are the people who have nowhere else to go.”

Health experts may agree with Musk – who launched an offer to buy Twitter last month – claiming there are a number of negative effects on the body from working from home.
