The plaintiffs allege that the company fired women more often than men.

Former Twitter employees file class action gender discrimination lawsuit. The lawsuit authors allege that the company's actions were discriminatory and women were more affected than men.

According to the lawsuit, the company fired 57% of women compared with 47% of men. The plaintiffs also stressed that this difference cannot be explained by the intention to retain as many engineering employees as possible, because female engineers were also fired more often than male engineers. According to them, women in technical positions were fired in 63% of cases against 48% for men in technical specialties.

The plaintiffs also said that Elon Musk's tweets demonstrate his "discriminatory animus against women". They argue that the requirement to work 12 hours a day has a "disproportionate impact on women, who are more often caregivers for children and other family members, and thus not able to comply with such demands".

This is the fourth class action lawsuit against Twitter. Former employees and contractors sued the company for violating the US Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act. Another former employee has brought a suit against the company, alleging that the demand to force all workers back to the office discriminates against people with disabilities.
