Tesla CEO Elon Musk has told executive staff at the company they face being fired unless they work at least 40 hours a week in the office.

In a leaked email sent to workers with the miss-spelt subject line ‘remote work is no longer acceptble’, Musk wrote that any executive staff who wish to work remotely must be in the office for a minimum of 40 hours per week ‘or depart Tesla’.

He added that the requirement for executive staff to work at least 40 hours in the office is ‘less than we ask of factory workers’.

Musk continued: ‘If there are particularly exceptional contributors for whom this is impossible, I will review and approve those exceptions directly.’

Musk went on to write in the email that the office ‘must be a main Tesla office, not a remote branch office unrelated to the job duties, for example being responsble for Fremont factory human relations, but having your office in another state’.

Responding to a question on Twitter from a follower about whether he has a comment to ‘people who think coming into work is an antiquated concept’, Musk wrote back: ‘They should pretend to work somewhere else.’
