Amazon is facing another lawsuit over its workplace practices. A former employee alleges the company failed to give 30-minute meal breaks to workers at one of its California fulfillment centers.

The former employee claims Amazon’s shifts were “chronically understaffed,” which affected workers taking 10-minute breaks.
