The National Labor Relations Board said Monday that Amazon illegally fired two employees last year who had been critical of the company.
The two former employees, Emily Cunningham and Maren Costa, alleged that the company exercised unfair labor practices after they were fired for being vocal about their "support for fellow Amazon employees' working conditions," according to documents obtained by FOX Business. Representatives for Amazon did not respond to FOX Business' request for comment.

Aside from drawing concern over working conditions, Cunningham and Costa had also been vocal about the company's impact on climate change, according to the New York Times.
The documents allege the company had violated the National Labor Relations Act by firing said employees for "discriminatory enforcement of policies or work rules, including its non-solicitation and communication policies."
