Issue Brief
The FLA’s Workplace Code of Conduct and benchmarks provide clear guidance on protecting the rights of the workers in supply chains where local laws fall short. With regard to overtime premiums, Benchmark C.7.1.2 provides that, “In those countries where there is no legally established overtime premium, employees shall be compensated for overtime hours at the prevailing industry premium rate or at the internationally recognized overtime rate, whichever is higher.”

Legal Minimum Wages in Pakistan

Publication date: 
Thursday, May 17, 2018
Report type: 
Issue Brief
While local minimum wage setting procedures have exacerbated the problem of low wages, brands sourcing apparel and textiles from Pakistan need not wait on the government to act before working with suppliers in support of fair compensation for workers. With current wage levels in Pakistan for most skilled workers falling well short of living wage estimates recommended by unions and civil society, action by brands and suppliers is needed to provide workers with wages that meet FLA standards.
