Tesla Inc. filed notices with its home state that shed light on which workers are being dismissed from several key California facilities as part of Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk’s profit-motivated reorganization.

In letters to state and local officials, the Tesla said it will part with at least 420 employees in Fremont, where it has its vehicle assembly plant, as well as 86 workers at its Palo Alto headquarters. The most common roles being cut are process technicians in Fremont and mechanical design engineers in Palo Alto, though the company lists dozens of different job titles in each notice.
