Workplace abuses were uncovered in an audit that equated to “a full body scan” of three Chinese factories pumping out coveted Apple gadgets, independent investigators reported on Thursday.
Employees at each of the factories exceeded a work-week limit of 76 hours set by Chinese law and, in some cases, worked more than seven days straight without a required 24-hour break, according to the Fair Labor Association.
“The Fair Labor Association gave Apple’s largest supplier the equivalent of a full-body scan through 3,000 staff hours investigating three of its factories and surveying more than 35,000 workers,” said FLA president Auret van Heerden.
“Apple and its supplier Foxconn have agreed to our prescriptions, and we will verify progress and report publicly.”
