An Amazon spokesperson said that the company is conducting thorough investigations for each of these unrelated cases.

“We have found no evidence to support the allegations. Amazon works hard to foster a diverse, equitable, and inclusive culture. We do not tolerate discrimination or harassment in any form, and employees are encouraged to raise concerns to any member of management or through an anonymous ethics hotline with no risk of retaliation,” the spokesperson was quoted as saying.

Amazon shareholders will vote next week on a New York pension fund proposal calling for an independent audit “to assess the company’s policies and practices on civil rights, equity, diversity, and inclusion.”
