The lawsuit, which was filed in a California court last week, details workers’ claims that they were subject to racial slurs, derogatory comments, and racially-motivated harassment in the workplace.

As outlined in the filing, workers allege that their colleagues frequently used the N-word and other racist or discriminatory terms like “slavery” or “plantation” to describe the factory’s work culture.

In addition, Tesla allegedly left racist graffiti on bathroom walls, benches, lockers, and workstations that contained “KKK,” the N-word, and drawings of swastikas.

The lawsuit claims management also took part in the harassment, “ignored repeated complaints and reports” regarding the issue, and retaliated against workers “for reporting and complaining about the discrimination.”

Another worker, Nathaniel Aziel Gonsalves, claims he was suddenly fired after nine years at Tesla in retaliation for continually reporting racial discrimination at the company.

Several other workers claim they were denied promotions on the basis of race, as well as given the “most physically demanding” jobs at Tesla.

This most recent lawsuit is just one of many targeting Tesla for alleged racial discrimination and other forms of workplace harassment.

Last year, a Black former elevator operator won his case that accused Tesla of not doing enough to prevent racial discrimination — he was awarded a reduced payout of $15 million.
