Layoffs were one of Elon Musk’s first moves when he took over Twitter, but after two months, there were some unresolved issues, namely the details of termination agreements and compensation payments.
Twitter, which had 7,500 employees at the end of October, by the time Musk joined the company, laid off half of the workers and even more left on their own. For example, the company no longer has a public relations team. And according to Business Insider, the HR department is also understaffed. as the company contacts the laid-off employees via external email.
Over the weekend, several former employees shared this means of communication that they received an email from “firstname.lastname@example.org”, which will not be associated with any department of the company. This correspondence will ask employees to sign a termination agreement in order to have access to compensation. But for this it was necessary to do Login on the website of another company, CPT Group.
The fact that the email is not coming from the twitter.com domain and that you still need to Login another organization aroused suspicion. Business Insider reports that many of the fired employees found the email in their spam folder.
