Tesla workers are being warned by automated emails if they don't swipe into the office frequently enough, after CEO Elon Musk threatened to fire anyone who failed to return to the office full time.

The latest shot in Musk's war against working from home was leaked this week, when a Tesla employee posted a screenshot of an email saying they failed to 'badge in' to the office frequently enough.

'This is an automated notification,' the email read. 'You are receiving this email because there is no record of you using your badge to enter a Tesla facility on at least 16 days over the 30-day period ending on June 28.' 

'As a reminder, all employees are expected to be back in the office, fulltime. We realize that there are various reasons why you may not have badged in, including illness, vacation or traveling for business,' the email added.

'Whatever the case, please clear the reason for you absence with your manager by email,' the message said.

A spokesperson for Tesla did not immediately respond to an inquiry from DailyMail.com on Thursday evening. 

It comes after Musk ordered employees to return to the office or leave the company in a May 31 email. 

'Everyone at Tesla is required to spend a minimum of 40 hours in the office per week,' Musk wrote in the email. 'If you don't show up, we will assume you have resigned.'

'The more senior you are, the more visible must be your presence,' Musk wrote. 'That is why I lived in the factory so much - so that those on the line could see me working alongside them. If I had not done that, Tesla would long ago have gone bankrupt.'

Amid Musk's crackdown on working from home, the CEO has also been carrying out his vow to cut about 10 percent of salaried staff at the electric carmaker.

The billionaire sent an internal email warning earlier this month of the need for cuts amid a gloomy economic outlook due to inflation and the brutal war in Ukraine. Musk himself said he had a 'super bad feeling' about the economy. 

Earlier this week, Tesla told at least 195 of the 276 staffers at the San Mateo, California office that they were being laid off, while those that remain were told they will be relocated, according to TechCrunch

'Everyone at Tesla is required to spend a minimum of 40 hours in the office per week,' Musk wrote in a second email sent to staff hours after the first, which was leaked and widely shared

The San Mateo offices were heavily involved with the Tesla Autopilot driver-assistance system. Staff were informed of the decision Tuesday.

Those laid off were considered 'moderately low-skilled, low-wage' workers that often did jobs like determining if the company's driver assistance program correctly identified objects. 

Musk has previously hit out against remote working policies and blasted Americans for 'trying to avoid going to work at all' and compared them to staff in China who stay at the factory 'burning the 3am oil'.

In April, staff at Tesla's Gigafactory were made to sleep at work when production resumed after a three-week shutdown. 

The factory started operating as a 'closed loop system to avoid further shutdowns caused by China's strict Zero Covid policy.

Workers were given a sleeping bag and mattress and part of the factory floor to camp out on. 

Tesla is cutting about 200 employees from its office in San Mateo, California as part of continued cuts by the electric car giants that will see the location close altogether

Food of around $63 a day was provided to each employee but they were expected to work 12 hours a day, with one day off every six days.

Before the temporary measures were imposed, staff reportedly worked eight-hour shifts with four days on and two days off.   

Before Shanghai's lockdown on March 28, the Gigafactory produced 2,000 cars a day and made half of the vehicles the company delivered worldwide last year.

Last month, Musk, who is currently in negotiations with Twitter over buying the social media giant, seemingly took aim at the company's lax remote working policies.

He said he asked his Twitter followers if he should transform the company's Silicon Valley headquarters into a homeless shelters 'since no one shows up anyway'.

It comes after Twitter brass - who offered staffers the
