“It was scary to be called into a meeting like that, and then to be given a follow-up email saying that if I continued to speak up, I could be fired.

But I spoke up because I’m terrified by the harm the climate crisis is already causing, and I fear for my children’s future.”

The Washington Post:

Amazon has warned at least two employees who publicly criticized the company’s environmental policies that they could be fired for future violations of its communications policy.

A lawyer in the e-commerce giant’s employee-relations group sent a letter to two workers quoted in an October Washington Post report, accusing them of violating the company’s external communications policy. An email sent to Maren Costa, a principal user-experience designer at the company, and reviewed by The Post warned that future infractions could “result in formal corrective action, up to and including termination of your employment with Amazon.”
