Amazon Employees to Resume Work Next Month

 Amazon requires warehouse employees suspended in the new corownan epidemic to resume shifts from May 1st, otherwise they must take leave.

For many Americans who were isolated at home during the epidemic, Amazon became an important channel for them to purchase daily supplies. Amazon’s decision gave the company’s employees a crucial multiple choice question.

After the New Corona epidemic began to wreak havoc on the United States, Amazon allowed warehouse employees who did not want to return to work to take unpaid leave without any punishment. At the same time, it provides a $ 2 per hour hazard allowance for employees who work as usual. This requirement lasts until the end of April.

The company said in a blog post released on Friday that they will extend this salary increase policy to May 16, but did not mention the unrestricted and unpaid leave policy. Amazon said the company “provides flexible leave options, including extending this policy to adapt to the covid 19 environment, such as high-risk individuals or school suspensions.”

An Amazon spokesperson said that part-time and full-time employees can ask for leave. It applies to employees who have health problems and employees who live with patients.

Since the outbreak of the new corona epidemic, the household appliance giant has been struggling to cope with the surge in orders. Some warehouse employees said that Amazon did not take sufficient measures to ensure their safety, and also carried out relatively rare strike protests among Amazon employees. Amazon has stepped up efforts to clean warehouses and forced employees to maintain social distance with each other.

Amazon said that the criticisms against the company’s lack of security measures are unfounded, and most employees are still working. They also use new recruits and temporary workers to keep the business running, many of them from a growing army of unemployed.

Amazon said earlier this month that the company recruited an additional 100,000 employees and plans to recruit an additional 75,000 employees to fill logistics positions.

The company also said on Friday that they will extend the overtime subsidy until mid-May. This subsidy from March will reach 700 million US dollars.

Earlier this week, it was reported that Amazon issued a notice to some employees that their unpaid leave policy will end at the end of April.
