A lawsuit was filed against Justin Sun, the founder of TRON and CEO of BitTorrent, and Head of Engineering Cong Li, accusing them of harassing and finally laying off two employees.
The legal action was taken after the employees Richard Hall and Lukasz Juraszek objected to management practices and some applications developed by the company.
The employees seek $15 million in damages on wrongful termination and labor law violations.
The 70-page lawsuit file states that Sun pressure Hall to finish software for BitTorrent as soon as possible by abusing him verbally.
The suit states, “Sun berated Hall with derogatory exclamations to pressure him into fast-tracking BitTorrent software releases. On other occasions, Juraszek claimed, Sun slapped Li and was never disciplined for it, and Li appeared to have physically hit a manager whom he allegedly had a pattern of verbally attacking in person and in group chats.”
Both Sun and Li have issued a statement saying:
“TRON is not able to speak on the details of pending litigation, but what we can tell you is that our customers, employees and the TRON community are extremely important to us.”
It was earlier reported that the TRON Foundation will offer 33 billion TRX ($442 million) in the coin market as of the first of January 2020.
The organization, which is presided by the Chinese entrepreneur Justin Sun, has not set a clear strategy to use the funds, the tweet showed.
The foundation has asked the crypto-community to put forward ideas about the purposes in which this offering can be utilized.
Some fans felt positively suggesting potential targets that most importantly include founding a coin burn, investing in partnerships.
It is worth mentioning that TRON is valued at $0.016, with a market capitalization of around $1.1 billion. It ranked second with more than 1 million active users and nearly 290 million transactions in 2019.
