A HOUSEKEEPER suing Amazon billionaire Jeff Bezos claims she had to climb out of a window to get access to a toilet.
Mercedes Wedaa also said she regularly worked 14 hours shifts with no breaks.
1Jeff Bezos is being sued over claims his housecleaner could not access a looCredit: AFPHer lawsuit claims that cleaners were not allowed to enter the home, other than to work — so when they needed the loo they had to climb out of a laundry room window to get to a path that led to one downstairs.
Wedaa — who spent three years working at the internet mogul’s home in Seattle, US — alleges that staff would get urinary tract infections because of not being able to go to the toilet for long periods.
She added she and other Hispanic staff faced racial discrimination and “unsafe and unsanitary conditions” before she was fired.
Wedaa began working at Bezos’s home in September 2019 and was heading a team of five to six staff by late 2021.
Harry Korrell, a lawyer for Bezos, 58, said the allegations “lacked merit” and claimed Wedaa had demanded a pay-off worth around £8million before filing the lawsuit.
He added: “She was responsible for her own break and meal times, and there were several bathrooms and break rooms available.”
