The drivers are the contractors, but the lawsuit says Amazon is ultimately responsible.
Amazon is currently defending itself against a complaint that could determine whether it is responsible for the actions of its delivery drivers. p>
More. Reading Amazon uses cameras and artificial intelligence to monitor its delivery drivers, and Rana sustained serious injuries, including brain damage, and had to rest on a ventilator. His spine was also damaged and he was unable to use his legs or arms despite months of treatment and rehabilitation. "I lost my leg, which is something I wouldn't wish for my worst enemy," Rana told Bloomberg. In June, Rana sued Amazon and its delivery contractor, claiming that the e-commerce giant was responsible for the driver's actions due to software the company used to monitor them. Amazon says it is not responsible because the driver did not work for it, but rather to Harper Logistics LLC, the contractor that delivers to the tech company. However, Rana's complaint claims that Amazon is liable because it ultimately controls the delivery. Amazon is using in-app smartphone app, cameras and sensors to closely monitor drivers to reduce delivery time and address safety concerns. The company carefully monitors a number of drivers' actions, including back-up monitoring, speed, braking, acceleration, cornering, seat belt use, phone calls, text messages, camcorders that use artificial intelligence to detect yawns, and more. Advocacy
In addition, the lawsuit alleges that Amazon is forcing contractors and drivers to prioritize speed over safety, sending text messages to Amazon employees "complaining about a particular driver." It is “behind the rabbit” and must be “rescued” to ensure that all packages on Amazon’s route are delivered in line with Amazon’s unrealistic and dangerous speed expectations. p>
In addition to Amazon, Rana complains to contractor Harper Logistics did. Driver Brian Williams and Old Republic Insurance, a contractor insurance company. But it's unlikely that anyone other than Amazon will be able to cover Rana's costs, especially since medical bills are currently more than $2 million. Harper Logistics insurance only covers $1 million in liability, and the company doesn't own its pickup trucks, which means that even in the event of bankruptcy, it likely won't be able to cover the cost. Williams, 23, earns just $15 an hour. Amazon, on the other hand, earned more than $3 billion last quarter. Committed to Safety It's Driver Safety. "And the communities we represent." He added that Amazon is working with delivery contractors "to create realistic expectations that don't put pressure on them or their delivery partners." Boshti said the number of crashes per mile in the first nine months of 2021 was down from the same period last year. AmazonDelivery drivers typically work 10-hour shifts, offering about 250 packages depending on the route. They drive Amazon-branded trucks, wear an Amazon-branded uniform, and have to use Amazon Flex, which the lawsuit states in the lawsuit “manages every conceivable aspect of package delivery.” Amazon first hit the market in 2018, and its contractor-heavy approach ran into trouble almost immediately. Drivers are reported to be breaking the law in an attempt to comply with the unreasonable quota system. Amazon initially planned to train its new fleet of drivers, but abandoned plans to speed up supply. p>
