Tesla details Bay Area layoffs, with sales and service taking hit

The sprawling Fremont campus where Tesla makes its cars will take the brunt of the company layoffs, Tesla said in public notices filed with the state of California.

The electric carmaker will terminate more than a thousand positions from its workforce in Northern California, as part of an announced round of layoffs affecting more than 3,200 full-time employees. The company laid off about 9 percent of its workforce in June, though that round mostly spared production-line workers at its Fremont manufacturing plant.

Tesla said in new papers submitted to the state’s Employment Development Department last week that it will lay off 802 workers in Fremont, 78 workers at its Palo Alto headquarters and 137 at its warehouses in Lathrop (San Joaquin County).
