Amazon Engineer sues for unpaid expenses from work from home during the pandemic on behalf of himself and thousands of workers in multiple California Amazon locations. This means it will be very expensive, and this Amazon engineer alleges it will be over $5 Million.

There are many questions and issues that you have to face, and the wrong move can lead to a very expensive lawsuit. It is so important to make sure your process and policies are up to date and compliant, and even better, to integrate this in your Employee Handbook.
