This includes but is "not limited to prevention of unpleasant breath or body odor, modest perfume/cologne, and clean teeth, face/ears, fingernails and hair," according to the company's policies for Delivery Service Partner (DSP), Bloomberg reported. Additionally, drivers are also supposed to abstain from any "obscene" posts on social media, according to the report.
The drivers are employed by independent businesses that have contracts with Amazon to transport packages as part of the DSP program. The program, launched in 2018, is now comprised of over 2,500 locally owned small business operators around the globe that employ tens of thousands of drivers.
