Amazon investigated for improper treatment of workers

Amazon has been facing increased scrutiny over alleged workplace safety issues. For example, a former employee at an Amazon warehouse in Pennsylvania was reportedly fired five weeks after being hurt on the job. She was refused the paperwork for a workers' compensation claim and had her short-term disability benefits cut short. This is just one instance of the alleged improper treatment of workers in Amazon warehouses. There are more than 140 fulfillment centers across the U.S. and approximately 560,000 Amazon employees worldwide.
