Amazon Reduces COVID Paid Leave For U.S. Employees
Amazon announced Monday it will now offer one week of COVID paid leave instead of two for all U.S. employees.
Amazon told employees in the United States that it's reducing paid leave for its COVID isolation policy.
The e-commerce giant will now only pay for seven days of paid leave instead of the previous allowance of 10 days.
The decrease corresponds with the CDC recommendation for isolating for five days after being exposed or testing positive.
Amazon says all employees must report a positive diagnosis and can still request additional leave if necessary.
