Amazon defends Covid-19 safety efforts amid fresh protests

Apr 29, 2020 13:07 IST

Amazon has defended its safety efforts against the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic even as it faced fresh protests from warehouse workers. More than 50 employees reportedly staged a walkout on April 26, while 2,000 others have signed a petition demanding that the e-commerce giant extends its unlimited unpaid sick leave policy that is ending on April 30. Meanwhile, news agency AFP cited an Amazon spokeswoman saying that the company offers two weeks additional paid leaves to workers diagnosed with Covid-19 or placed into quarantine.
