Foxconn is violating Chinese Labor laws to meet Apple’s iPhone 11 demand

Foxconn is violating Chinese Labor laws to meet Apple’s iPhone 11 demand

The discovery was made by China Labor Watch (CLW), which released a report on its findings Monday after getting its undercover investigators employed at Foxconn's plant in Zhengzhou.

Under China's labour laws, temporary workers can only comprise up to 10 per cent of any given company's workforce.

"We did find during our investigation that the percentage of dispatch workers exceeded our standards and we are working closely with Foxconn to resolve this issue". CLW led an examination of work conditions at the production line over a multi year time span and found that Foxconn and Apple are in charge of some noteworthy maltreatment of the Chinese workers. "We have confirmed all workers are being compensated appropriately, including any overtime wages and bonuses, all overtime work was voluntary and there was no evidence of forced labor", it added.

Apparently Foxconn is doing all the measures to fulfill Apple iPhone 11 orders. "We are working intimately with Foxconn to determine this", the organization said.

Zhengzhou, the capital of Henan province, is a major source of factory labour in China and has been a Foxconn manufacturing hub for years.

The CLW report also exposed the problem of pervasive overtime work at the Zhengzhou factories.

Foxconn also responded Monday, saying that the facility "currently has no interns performing time beyond regulation". The facility is the world's most important producing web-site for Apple smartphones, developing half of all iPhones offered globally, in accordance to the team. Foxconn said some dispatch employees carried out overtime work for which they were paid, and while it was "always voluntary", it is not consistent with company rules.

Earlier this year, media reports said Apple was considering moving some operations out of China to avoid new USA tariffs, with Japan's Nikkei Asian Review in June putting the figure at 15 to 30 percent of production. Foxconn Technology Group additionally confirmed the dispatch employee violation following an operational overview.

Last month the organisation reported on the use of teen interns at a Foxconn plant producing Amazon devices.

One temporary worker jumped to his death from a Zhengzhou Foxconn factory dormitory in 2018 reportedly because he did not receive his bonus, The South China Morning Post reported.

The factory didn't provide the workers with adequate protective equipment, even though workers said they were exposed to toxic chemicals every day. The investigation also showed that some workers put in at least 100 overtime hours each month, while Chinese labor law limits monthly overtime to 36 hours. "We will not hesitate to take any additional steps that might be required to meet the high standards we set for our operations".
