Amazon fined for ‘excessive’ employee monitoring



“The CNIL ruled that the system for measuring the speed at which items were scanned was excessive,” the authority said in its media release. “The CNIL ruled that it was illegal to set up a system measuring work interruptions with such accuracy, potentially requiring employees to justify every break or interruption.”
