TEKsystems Dragged into Twitter Class Action Over No-Notice Layoffs
It's a trend - staffing firms are getting sued for clients' actions
On April 4, 2023, a noted plaintiff-side employment law firm launched a class action lawsuit in San Francisco against Twitter and staffing giant TEKsystems, alleging that both firms violated the federal and California WARN Acts when Twitter abruptly laid off a number of contract personnel last October and November. Styled Christina Gadala vs. Twitter and TEKsystems (case attached below), the suit follows a similar case brought last year against Twitter and managed services provider Pro Unlimited, d/b/a Magnit. These cases are part of a disturbing trend of staffing firms getting sued for the allegedly unlawful actions of their clients.
