Story

In August 2017 the Business and Human Rights Resource Centre reported that "Transgender woman & husband sue Amazon over alleged workplace harassment & physical threats in Kentucky warehouse".
It stated, "A transgender woman and her husband sued Amazon.com Inc…accusing the company of subjecting them to severe harassment and physical threats when they both worked at the retailer’s warehouse in Kentucky.

A group representing the couple said their case was striking given the Seattle-based company’s vocal support of LGBT rights.

…The couple lodged a series of complaints with supervisors…but the company took no action, the lawsuit said.

Supervisors joined in the harassment…The two feared for their lives…[and] quit their jobs in 2015 following the incidents."
The company lost half a mark under Worker's Rights.
