Tesla CEO, Elon Musk has, however, in the past suggested that certain “excellent contributors” may be permitted for working from home.

This comes after a difficult week in which 200 employees were laid off and a California office closed its doors as part of a larger operation that would see the corporation decrease its paid personnel by 10%.
