In 2017, the employee said she had such severe muscle cramps from dehydration that she was rushed to the hospital in an ambulance.
Earlier this summer, the woman also said she suffered from severe dizziness and nausea that forced her to stop working.
Workers said in the complaint that the company knows how hot it is in the un-air-conditioned metal warehouse, yet it does not provide proper breaks to allow workers to cool down or reduce production quotas on extremely hot days.
