Justin Sun & Tron Foundation Sued owing to Bad Working Condition, Discrimination & Assault
The founder of Tron Justin Sun and the Tron foundation has been sued by former employees for workplace aggression.
The lawsuit which was filed by last year in a 70 page document in the state of California by Richard Hall and Lukasz Juraszek revealed they have been victims of aggressive and hostile working environment.
The ex-employees are suing for $15 million in damages and government actions against claims of labour violations on the grounds of wrongful termination, discrimination, emotional distress and hostile work environment.
In the lawsuit, the plaintiff expressed undue pressure to deliver by fast-tracking the BitTorrent Software releases.
Lukasz Juraszek also claimed CEO of Tron, Justin Sun physically assaulted the Head of engineering however, there was apology issued for the assault.
Same Head of Engineering was also seen according to Lukasz Juraszek to have also hit a manager whom the former is known to always launch attacks at.
The 70-page document also showed some ethical issues with the management of the organization, specifically on the issue of copyright infringement.
Based on the report of the Court document, Richard Hall said he flagged some risk of third parties hosting copyright-infringement and child pornographic contents but CEO of Tron, gave little to no ears about the issue.
Lukasz Juraszek also claimed the manager physically assaulted by the Head of engineering, Cong Li told him that Cong Li appears to “hold him to impossibly high engineering standards”.
Not long after, he was kicked out of the company for reporting observation to human resources. According to the lawsuit, Lukasz Juraszek said after he was kicked out, an unknown user accessed his work computer from another location and his emails disappeared.
Richard Hall on the other hand, claimed Cong Li threatened him to deter him from recording their conversation, according to the lawsuit, the following words were used “if you go tighter with me, I will go tighter with you”, he also said “things will end badly for you”, “I cannot protect you” according to the lawsuit.
The plaintiffs also claimed Chinese nationals came from Mainland to replace both of them and other local nationals.
And these Chinese workers also behaved less responsible towards local laws and this gave Justin Sun upper hand in enforcing unfavourable work timetable.
Justin Sun has been involved in several controversy over the life of his company starting from the plagiarism of the Tron Blockchain white paper and codes, to his involvement in pump and dump schemes as well as the postponement of his lunch with Warren Buffet.
The former employees are suing for $15 million.
