Tesla CEO emails employees about 'extensive damage & sabotage' by an employee

Tesla CEO, Elon Musk emailed his entire company about misconduct by an employee. In his email, Musk mentioned that an employee is damaging sabotage to the company operations.

Musk alleged the employee of tweaking code on internal products and sending out the company data without authorization. It can be recalled that last week the electric car maker announced a board restructuring and also slashed 9 per cent of its workforce. 

The email received by CNBC read- 

“I was dismayed to learn this weekend about a Tesla employee who had conducted quite extensive and damaging sabotage to our operations. This included making direct code changes to the Tesla Manufacturing Operating System under false usernames and exporting large amounts of highly sensitive Tesla data to unknown third parties. The full extent of his actions are not yet clear, but what he has admitted to so far is pretty bad. His stated motivation is that he wanted a promotion that he did not receive. In light of these actions, not promoting him was definitely the right move.”
