Anyway, he was accidentally fired.

He said, “I saw these situations every day.”

3. The strict control of workers at Amazon has fostered a culture of fear.
Amazon tracks every movement of workers in its warehouse. Employees who work very slowly or are unemployed for a long time are at risk of layoffs.
Diana Santos was an exceptional worker until she had a bad day in 2019. Her buses were late, then her apartment was reset, so she had to scour the warehouse to find a new workstation. That afternoon, I was surprised to learn that she was going to be fired for spending so much time on “off work.”
Very few employees are laid off due to low productivity or spending too much time away from their workstations, but employees don’t know it. JFK8’s internal guidelines state that the goal is “to create an environment in which we don’t report everyone, but instead let employees know we’re doing a TOT check.”
The system is designed to identify barriers workers may encounter, but some executives, including the chief human relations engineer at Amazon warehouses, worry that current metrics are casting a heavy shadow on the workforce and believe it’s a negative and anxious environment.
After questions from the Times about Santos and TOT, Amazon announced changes to its policy so that workers are never fired after a bad day. Santos and all persons like her are eligible for reemployment. The company said it had reconsidered that policy for several months.
