Tesla accuses a former employee of stealing 26,000 confidential files between his hiring on December 28, 2020 and his dismissal for these facts a week later, and filed a complaint on Friday in a court in California.
Banned downloads were spotted on January 6, 2021, and this computer engineer, who was teleworking because of the Covid, assured that they were only personal administrative files, according to this complaint consulted by AFP. But Tesla, who explains that he immediately called him by videoconference when the downloads were reported, also accuses the former employee of having sought to destroy the evidence.
“This revealed that the same confidential Tesla files seen on his laptop were still available through his cloud storage account,” further indicates the complaint filed by the electric vehicle manufacturer. Downloads began on December 31, 2020, and lasted until January 4, 2021, with “additional” downloads on January 6, according to Tesla.
“After discovering the theft (…) of Tesla’s trade secrets, and because of his repeated lies and cover-ups during the investigation, Tesla fired (the engineer) the same day”, it is further clarified . He explained to the “New York Post” that he had transferred these documents to his Dropbox by mistake.
