Twitter France’s head resigns, saying ‘It’s done,’ amid layoffs
Viel informed Reuters in a separate message that he was quitting Twitter.
Twitter Inc’s French COO Damien Veil has said he is leaving the social media platform, whose new owner, Elon Musk, has fired top executives and imposed deep job cuts at the company.
“It’s over,” Fyle wrote on Twitter on Sunday and thanked his team in France, which he has captained for the past seven years.
Veale confirmed he was leaving Twitter in a separate letter to Reuters.
He did not elaborate on the circumstances of his departure and declined to say how many people worked on Twitter in France before or after Musk’s takeover of the company last month.
Labour laws in France prohibit companies from laying off permanent employees overnight. France-based companies are required to formally inform employees that they intend to cancel their plans in advance, usually via a letter with acknowledgement of receipt.
They also must respect certain notice periods, depending on the nature of the dismissal and the seniority of the employees.
For layoffs affecting multiple employees within 30 days, companies must also follow certain procedures, which include reporting to employees, employee representatives, and the Department of Labor.
This means that the whole process takes at least several weeks and even several months.
A Twitter spokesperson in France did not respond to messages seeking comment since Musk was inaugurated in October.
Twitter has gone through bumps since the richest person in the world took over. He has cut global staff in half, while Musk has raised the prospect of bankruptcy for the social media platform.
He recently told employees to consider whether they want to stay “long, intense hours” or accept a severance package with three months’ pay.
