Underground Printing, United States

On August 22, 2013, the Fair Labor Association received a Third Party Complaint from an individual who elected to remain anonymous regarding a facility operated by Underground Printing, a Category C Licensee of the FLA. The facility is located in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The Third Party Complaint alleged noncompliances with Compliance Benchmarks related to the Employment Relationship, Safety and Health, Hours of Work, and Compensation elements of the FLA Workplace Code of Conduct.

The FLA commissioned consultant Miriam Rodriguez to conduct an independent assessment of the facility to verify the action items Underground Printing had indicated had been completed and others still in progress. Ms. Rodriguez conducted the independent verification from March 31 to April 3, 2014, and submitted a final report to the FLA on April 27.
