Amazon Accused of Failing to Protect Warehouse Workers from Spread of COVID-19

  • Complaint

NEW YORK — Seven Amazon warehouse employees have sued the company in New York federal court, accusing it of failing to take adequate measures to protect its workers against the COVID-19 virus, leading to at least one confirmed death and several infections.

In a June 3 complaint filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York, plaintiffs — all employed at Amazon’s “JFK8” Staten Island, N.Y., fulfillment center — contend that to maintain productivity while reducing costs, Amazon encouraged workers to come in sick and prevented them from engaging in proper hygiene, sanitizing or social distancing.
