Amazon has been fined €32m (£27m) in France for "excessive" surveillance of its workers, including measures the data watchdog found to be illegal.

Axar.az reports the CNIL said Amazon France Logistique, which manages warehouses, recorded data captured by workers' handheld scanners.

It found Amazon tracked activity so precisely that it led to workers having to potentially justify each break.

Amazon said it strongly disagreed with the CNIL's findings and called them "factually incorrect".

France's data protection agency investigated Amazon warehouses following complaints by employees as well as media coverage of conditions.

It outlined several areas where it found Amazon had breached the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
