California Gov. Gavin Newsom has signed a new law that will require Amazon.com Inc. and other companies to disclose any quotas or workplace-productivity measures it applies to workers in the state.
The legislation is the first to target a central facet of working at an Amazon warehouse, where the company has long used performance quotas to gauge worker productivity as it has gradually sped up shipping times. Gov. Newsom, a Democrat, signed the bill about two weeks after it was approved by state lawmakers.
