Amazon Staffing Agency Fights Jobless Claims As CEO Todd Bavol Enjoys Beach House
The company responsible for staffing a Pennsylvania Amazon warehouse is fighting to keep some former workers from getting their unemployment benefits, but that hasn't stopped the company's CEO from enjoying a few of the finer things in life.
Integrity Staffing Solutions, a temporary staffing agency hired by Amazon to hire workers for its Lehigh Valley, Pa., warehouse, is involved in hundreds of unemployment claims appeal hearings per year, more than most Pennsylvania employers, according to a report from The Morning Call.
It's not rare to challenge former workers’ unemployment claims, especially during the recession, when more employers began fighting their former employees’ ability to collect their jobless benefits, according to The Washington Post. Businesses save money when they’re able to block jobless claims because their jobless insurance rates are based on how much their workers collect in unemployment claims.
