EDWARDSVILLE, Illinois — Congressional Democrats have accused Amazon of obstructing their investigation into the company’s labor practices during severe weather events.
Amazon’s policies have come under scrutiny since the fatal collapse of a company warehouse last year in Edwardsville, Illinois.
Regulators found Amazon’s Edwardsville facility met federal minimum safety requirements for storm shelters, but said it presented other safety risks.
The House Committee on Oversight and Reform is also investigating the incident. A letter signed by the committee chair to Amazon’s CEO says the Seattle-based company failed to turn over key documents.
An Amazon spokesman said the company was surprised to receive the letter. The spokesman said Amazon has submitted relevant documents and will produce more.
