It seems that Amazon needs to start contracting with companies that don't get them sued, especially when it comes to stuff like overtime wages and other clear cut issues covered by federal law.

As Amazon shifts more of its logistics workload away from traditional parcel services like FedEx and UPS and toward contractors who deliver orders in Amazon’s name, the e-commerce giant continues to face legal challenges over the way those contracted workers are being treated. The latest example comes out of Illinois, where former delivery drivers are accusing Amazon of not paying them required overtime wages.
