Findings and conclusions

A (former) worker in a factory supplying Odd Molly filed a complaint that concerned unlawful dismissal (legally binding employment relationship), excessive overtime and payment of a living wage. The worker had been dismissed for leaving the factory without permission, when no permission was granted upon request. He was not paid his last salary and received no severance pay. He also complained about excessive overtime and non-payment of overtime premiums. The ensuing investigation confirmed the findings and a corrective action plan was drafted. The worker, meanwhile, received the salary he was due and some retrenchment compensation, though still not in compliance with the law. In 2011, FWF should verify that the corrective action has been implemented. As Odd Molly, for reasons unrelated to the complaint, has decreased production and may leave the factory altogether, verification may not be feasible.
