Warehouse workers to get legal protection from COVID
SAN FRANCISCO – (INT) – A first-of-its-kind stipulated judgment will require Amazon to end harmful labor practices that concealed COVID-19 case numbers from its workers.

Under a complaint filed by the California Attorney General’s office, Amazon failed to adequately notify warehouse workers and local health agencies of COVID-19 case numbers leaving the employees unable to track the spread of the virus.

Under a right-to-know law, as part of the stipulated judgment, Amazon will modify its COVID-19 notifications to workers and local health agencies, submit to monitoring and pay $500,000 toward further enforcement of California’s consumer protection laws.
