Tesla HR boss HITS BACK online after firm's £100m racial abuse payout

Tesla has been ordered to pay more than £100m for failing to stop a black former worker from being racially abused, the BBC reports.

The electric car maker must pay the eye-watering sum, equivalent to around $137m, to Owen Diaz, who worked as a lift operator at the firm’s plant in San Francisco between 2015 and 2016.
