Tech Giant Amazon Threatened Employees To Fire Who are Speaking About Climate Change

The current situation is not suitable for big companies because they are not only receiving criticism from outside critics but internally also. Recently Amazon issued a warning notice employees who are speaking about climate change. Amazon employees are talking about climate change and criticising their own company which is publicly diminishing the tech giant’s goodwill. In a tweet, it’s a group of employees who were informed about their violation of external policies regarding talking about climate change. Some employees were got contacted by human and resource department regarding this issue, and they issued the warning notice of getting fired. Two employees were explicitly told by the company’s top management that they would be required to get out of the office if they continue speaking against the company’s policies. A group of Amazon employees on twitter used the social media platform to raise questions about the company’s and Jeff Bezos’s leadership qualities regarding climate change. Reportedly a software engineer from Amazon received a warning notice from the Human and resource department for talking about climate change issues which is negatively impacted the production company’s goodwill.

In response, employees said that Amazon changed their communication policies about employees talking about climate change publicly. However, the tech giant company said this policy which requires employees to seek approval before talking about controversial things is not new. Jeff Bezos is already getting criticized for following too much capitalistic leadership by socialist activist and few politicians including President Trump. Top executives think such norms are necessary for the company’s internal management because it’ll help them to maintain office culture and will not distort the public image. Bezos has shown earlier that Amazon would try to be using more of renewable energy in future and reduce gas emission drastically by the end of 2030. Now some experts think such decisions are an effect of a group of employees protest against the company’s internal policies.
