Amazon is facing charges of violating labour laws in the US for firing warehouse worker Courtney Bowden of Pennsylvania, according to a complaint issued by the US government's National Labor Relations Board and obtained by BuzzFeed News.
She started advocating paid time off for warehouse workers in December 2019, according to the complaint. She was joined by others in demanding paid time off and by March their efforts yielded result when Amazon heeded to their demand.
But Bowden had alleged that Amazon by then had started retaliation for her involvement in the campaign. In March, she was sacked abruptly over an alleged incident involving her supervisor.
