SpaceX must follow DOJ’s recruitment records

A U.S. judge on Wednesday ruled that Elon Musk’s SpaceX company should work on the Justice Department’s hiring records, opening the door to a federal investigation into the company.

“Respondent SpaceX has been REQUIRED to complete the summons within 21 days,” U.S. Judge Dolly Gee wrote in the order.

The Gee court heard the case in the last two months after SpaceX filed an appeal in April against another federal judge’s recommendation to force the company to comply with the summons.

The court’s recommendation in March said there were “multiple” investigations against the company, and SpaceX’s argument that the summons was “excessive by the government” was rejected. The Gee Court accepted these findings and this recommendation.

SpaceX did not immediately respond to Acesparks’s request for comment.

DOJ check

The DOJ’s Department of Immigration and Employee Rights conducted an investigation last year after Fabian Hutter, a job applicant for SpaceX, complained to the government that the company was discriminating against him. Earlier this year, Hutter said in an interview with Acesparks he believes SpaceX decided not to hire him after answering a question about his citizenship in March 2020 for the position of technical strategy deputy.

Hutter has dual citizenship in Austria and Canada, but is a legal permanent U.S. citizen according to court documents filed with the Central District Court of California.

However, the DOJ department said it was not only investigating the complaint, but could “investigate whether it is.” [SpaceX] engages in any form or practice of discrimination prohibited by federal law.

In October, investigators received a call from SpaceX requiring them to provide information and documents related to the recruitment and approval process, which SpaceX did not fully comply with.
