On May 10, 2011, FLA released a report on the Third Party Complaint (3PC) filed by the union Sindicato de Trabajadores de Industria Textil Choishin (SITRACHOI) alleging a number of labor violations including the illegal termination of employment contracts and nonpayment of severance. Liz Claiborne, Inc., the FLA-affiliated company sourcing from Choishin, agreed to elevate the 3PC immediately, moving to Step 3 of the 3PC process. At this phase, FLA commissioned independent accredited monitor A & L Group Inc. (ALGI) to conduct an investigation. Following the investigation, FLA then commissioned the Commission for the Verification of Corporate Codes of Conduct (COVERCO), to verify the progress. The 3PC is now closed.
