Is Amazon Unable To Follow Their Own Policies?

Amazon had pledged to provide its workers with two weeks of paid sick leave if they tested positive or were in quarantine due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, several Amazon employees, as reported by CNBC on April 6, revealed that they either received no pay or only 60% of their average weekly paycheck despite meeting the eligibility criteria for paid sick leave. This failure to adhere to their own policies has led many Amazon workers to apply for unemployment benefits to bridge the income gaps.
