(Reuters) – California Attorney General Xavier Becerra on Monday asked a court to compel Amazon.com Inc (NASDAQ 🙂 to comply with pending investigative submissions into its investigation into the company’s treatment of the coronavirus pandemic.
The petition filed with the Sacramento County Supreme Court alleges that Amazon failed to adequately respond to requests for information as part of an investigation into the company’s coronavirus logs and the status of COVID-19 cases at its facilities across the state.
“Amazon has delayed adequately responding to our investigation requests long enough,” Becerra said in the petition.
The subpoenas seek specific details about the nature and scope of coronavirus prevention efforts at Amazon, including guidelines for sick leave, cleaning procedures, and data on the number of infections and deaths in camps in California, the petition said.
Amazon did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
