Tesla factory worker sues, claiming harassment, discrimination

A Tesla Inc. factory worker is suing the electric-car maker, claiming he was subject to racial discrimination, sexual harassment and threats from his co-workers.

The 11-count suit filed on behalf of DeWitt Lambert, 44, alleges that between summer 2015 and spring 2016, his co-workers at Tesla’s TSLA, +2.68% Fremont, Calif., assembly line regularly taunted him with sexual and racial epithets, including “the N-word,” made violent threats and once placed a drill gun in his buttocks. Lambert also said a co-worker stole his iPhone in 2015 and recorded a violent verbal rant against him on video.

“This was my dream job and it turned into a nightmare,” Lambert said in a statement.
