Fair Labor Association Releases Results of Investigations at Foxconn

The Fair Labor Association (FLA) has revealed the results of the investigation conducted at Foxconn, one of the major suppliers of Apple. The results were not that good for both Apple and Foxconn. Several violations were found regarding working hours and compensation.

One of the violations revealed were that workers were found exceeding working hours of 60 (regular plus overtime) and found that they were working too many days consecutively (7 days without the required 24 hours of rest).

Also found was that 14% of workers in three of the facilities were not compensated enough to even pay their basic needs.

Both Apple and Foxconn have agree to fix the violation found by the FLA, including reducing working hours while not affecting compensation of workers.

This report is only the first of several to be conducted on Apple's supply chain.

You can read the full report below.
