On January 16, 2007, FLA released a report on two separate Third Party Complaints (3PC) filed by workers at the Textile, Co., Inc. facility in the Dominican Republic, owned by FLA affiliate Gildan Activewear. The 3PCs alleged harassment, verbal abuse, and intimidation by specific managers at the factory. In response, Gildan followed up with the managers named in the complaint and enacted a remediation plan to address the complaints, including training in the Dominican Republic for its in-country leaders, supervisors, and coordinators on Leadership, Harassment, and Communication Skills. The company further engaged Verité to conduct a Risk Assessment Audit of Gildan's standards, with particular emphasis on harassment and abuse.
