This is a new complaint that FWF has just filed. At this point in the procedure, the complaint is pending investigation, and FWF has not yet proven it to be grounded. Updates to the investigation will follow. The brand is requested to share the complaint with factory management and to get their perspective. Ideally, this includes obtaining documental evidence in addition to a statement from management.
On 3 August 2019, a former worker filed a complaint to FWF about a factory still owning him/her 50,038.08 RMB for his/her wages from 2010 to 2015. The complainant informed FWF that he/she checked his/her wages from the local land tax bureau (the factory used workers' real wage for taxation), and he/she found there were always deficits for his/her wages compared to his/her bank account from 2010 to 2015. His/her real wages for that period were always higher than the wages the factory transferred to his/her bank account. He/she was able to provide a document with a stamp from the land tax bureau to prove the real wages, versus the bank payment from the factory in the period from 2010 to 2015. He/she found that for five years, the factory did not paid him/her 50,038.08 RMB in total.
