Publication date: 
Tuesday, August 21, 2012

In February 2012, FLA assessed working conditions and the treatment of workers at three Chinese factories manufacturing Apple products, which are owned and operated by Hon Hai Precision Industry Co., Ltd. (Foxconn) in Shenzhen and Chengdu.  On March 28, 2012, FLA published detailed reports on each of the three factories along with recommendations for improving conditions for workers, and a complete remediation plan prepared by Apple and Foxconn to address each issue identified during the FLA assessment. Each remedial action item included a description of the steps to be taken, the name of the unit within Foxconn responsible for implementation, and a timeline for completion. The action plan stretches over a period of 15 months, from April 1, 2012, through July 1, 2013, with deadlines for many of the action items set in the first three months. Read the original investigation report and action plan at http://www.fairlabor.org/report/foxconn-investigation-report. FLA-accredited assessors returned to the facilities from June 25 to July 6 2012 to verify the implementation status of remedial action items through June 30. Read the report, along with detailed information on each of the action items, below.
