Amazon did not respond to a question of job examples that the deal would ban its former store workers. But it should be noted that some of the largest U.S. employers, retailers such as Walmart and Target, have implemented cross-cutting programs to align the prices of products sold with Amazon.com, making products sold in thousands of retail stores across the country even more directly compete with those that are sorted through Amazon warehouses across the country. «The employee recognizes that the restrictions in this section 4 can, in many respects, significantly limit the employee`s future flexibility,» the agreement states, referring to the section that contains the non-competition agreement and three other clauses. «The employee also recognizes that geographic areas are very broad and, in many cases, global for many amazon products and services, and therefore the geographic areas that apply to certain section 4 restrictions. Amazon violates employees` rights every day by issuing PIVOT plans that do not comply with the law, because they refrain from informing employees of more than 40 of their legal rights under the OWRPA and granting them their legal rights. To comply with the law, Amazon`s PIVOT plan should contain a copy of the compensation/release agreement, and Amazon should give employees more than 40 twenty-one days (21) days to decide whether to accept severance pay or opt for a PIP. If you are over 40 years old and have received a PIVOT plan and your legal rights have been violated, call me so I can help you enforce them. The extension of the low-wage work non-compete clause was known across the country last year, when the Huffington Post reported that Jimmy John had some of his permanent collaborators sign non-cumulative agreements covering sandwich sellers within a three-mile radius of Jimmy John`s sites. Members of the U.S.
Congress have called for a federal investigation into the sandwich chain`s use of the agreements. The Amazon contract appears more extreme: not only is it pushed towards temporary workers who have inevitably reduced their chances when they are fired, but it is also explicit in its potentially unlimited geographical scope.
