Managing Partner Sam Pond discussed the working conditions of Amazon warehouse employees is a recent op-ed article published by the Philadelphia Inquirer. The article focuses on how Amazon’s quota system has endangered employee’s health, yet when workers do get hurt, they are often left to suffer while waiting for workers’ compensation benefits.
“[T]he emphasis of efficiency over safety has placed workers at a heightened risk for injury. When such injuries go uncompensated, the effects are devastating,” Pond wrote. “Workers are far too often left without recourse. Currently, the system has failed to hold Amazon accountable.”
