SpaceX Wins Big in Wrongful Termination Trial
Updated: Mar 23, 2019
SpaceX is the frequent target of highly publicized lawsuits. The company’s wins are less frequently reported. But it scored a big one last month in Los Angeles, when a jury rejected an ex-employee’s six million dollar wrongful termination claim. The employee alleged that the company fired him in retaliation for reporting to his bosses that the company allegedly falsified test results and failed to follow testing protocols. The company convinced the jury that the employee was in fact terminated because of poor conduct and failing to perform to standards.
