She asked for medical leave, which was denied, according to a letter reviewed by Motherboard showing that Amazon had denied her request for Family and Medical Leave Act leave because she hadn't worked enough hours. \"You are not eligible for leave under the federal Family and Medical Leave Act because you have not worked 1,250 hours in the previous 12 months. In 2019, Amazon warehouse workers in Phoenix wrote a letter to Jeff Bezos that said that pregnant workers had received final warnings from Amazon for \"time off task.\" AdvertisementUnder federal law, it is often legal for companies, including Amazon, to deny pregnant workers lighter duty.
