3 former employees suing Tesla SolarCity often exaggerate sales

Sina Technology News Beijing time in the evening of July 31st news, three former employees of Tesla before the old owner of the court, said SolarCity often exaggerated sales, and CEO Elon Musk (Elon Musk) did not take any measures to stop this behavior.

SolarCity, a U.S. company specializing in home-based photovoltaic projects, was acquired by Tesla in 2016 for $2.6 billion. The three former employees who joined the lawsuit joined the SolarCity San Diego office in San Diego in 2016.

The three former employees said in the indictment that they had seen their colleagues forged sales accounts and signed false contracts aimed at exaggerating sales figures and catering to shareholders. They also reported that they had reported this behavior to the manager or even musk himself, but the company ignored it.

In the indictment, they said, "Tesla not only did not stop this illegal act, but also retaliated against the plaintiff and dismissals them on false grounds."

In addition, the three plaintiffs, Andrew Staples (Andrew Staples), Robert Ray (Robert Ray) and Angunita White (Anqunetta White), also said they did not get overtime when they worked overtime, and they were not allowed to rest at work.

In fact, over the past two years, investors have been questioning why Tesla wants to buy SolarCity, at a time when Tesla had to save money and make more cars.

Tesla has been shrinking solar energy since its acquisition of SolarCity in 2016. In the fourth quarter of 2015, SolarCity installed solar energy at 253 megawatts, and dropped to 76 megawatts in the first quarter of this year.

Analysts say Tesla's acquisition of SolarCity is a mistake and also brings huge costs to Tesla. (Li Ming)
