Amazon To Pay the Million-Dollar FineAccording to Bloomberg’s latest report, although Amazon still rejects the accusation, the giant online retailer still confirmed that it will appeal the decision of the EU. However, this would certainly take some time before it is completely resolved.
A worker loads a truck with packages at an Amazon packaging center on November 28, 2019 in Brieselang, Germany. Amazon is anticipating a strong holiday season and has hired extra workers at its packaging center across Germany. Meanwhile workers at some of the centers, though not at Brieselang, have announced strikes to further their demands for better pay.
Amazon is not the only one facing data-privacy lawsuits in Europe. Google, which currently holds the largest EU privacy penalty, is one of them. Facebook and other social media giants are also included.
Other Issues of Amazon
Another issue that the giant retailer is currently facing is about bypassing safety inspections. CNBC reported that many Amazon drivers claimed that their U.S.-based managers order them to avoid reporting the issues of their vans.
Aside from this, they added that they were asked to bypass inspections on a regular basis. Just like in the mentioned lawsuit against the retailer, Amazon also declined its drivers’ accusations.
