Jaguar Land Rover data leak reveals employee records, upcoming layoffs

Nick Kurczewski reports:

A massive data leak has revealed the personnel files of hundreds of employees at Jaguar Land Rover‘s factory in Solihull, England. The documents reveal details such as sick days used, disciplinary issues and — most notably — red lines indicating potential firings in the weeks or months ahead. In total, the personal records of more than 600 workers were released. JLR is scrambling to contain the crisis. The breach was first reported by the Huffington Post UK, with the automaker initially claiming the story was “fake news.”

That publicity gaff certainly didn’t help matters, especially for employees staring at their name with a red line slashed across it.
