Famed attorney Gloria Allred is representing an AWS employee in a discrimination and harassment case against a top executive at the cloud giant, Protocol has learned.
Allred declined to comment. AWS did not respond to multiple requests for comment.
The development comes as AWS initiates an external review into employee claims that the company's process to evaluate reports of such behavior is not "fair, objective or transparent," according employee complaints. AWS tapped Oppenheimer Investigations Group to conduct the probe, according to sources. Oppenheimer did not respond to requests for comment.
Several discrimination and harassment lawsuits have also been filed against AWS in recent months.
