Ab 701

Warehouse Worker Injuries and Quotas

Current technology makes it possible for employers to enforce an unrealistic work pace by squeezing every ounce of downtime a worker has. Required to meet ruthless quotas and punishing speeds at e-commerce giants like Amazon and Walmart, workers must perform at a rate that is inherently unsafe. AB 701 would protect workers in warehouse distribution centers by creating statewide standards to minimize on-the-job injuries and strengthen workers’ rights against abusive and arbitrary work quotas.
