March 25 (Reuters) – Inc is facing a lawsuit in California accusing it of violating state law by not reimbursing employees who were required to work from home during the COVID-19 pandemic for internet, cell phone and other home office expenses.

Amazon employee David Williams claims in the lawsuit that he and other workers used their personal phones and home internet and electricity to work remotely and that the company flouted a state law requiring reimbursements for work-related expenses.

The case was transferred to a California federal court on Thursday, after Williams last week added class-action claims to the 2021 lawsuit on behalf of all Amazon employees in the state who were required to work from home during the pandemic.
