Amazon.com Services and Contractor Fined $6.4 Million

In early March, the California Department of Industrial Relations reported that Amazon.com Services LLC and its contractor have been fined $6.4 million for wage theft violations.

The fine comes as a result of an investigation into delivery drivers in Southern California who, on multiple incidents, were not paid properly for extra time even though they worked 11+ hours in a single day to complete the delivery route. In addition, the state found that there were additional violations on minimum wage, overtime, meal breaks, and more.
