FInal REPORT COMPLAINT IN China AT FACTORY SUPPLYING Albiro and Haglöffs
In September 2015, FWF’s local copmlaints handler in China received a complaint regarding a shared supplier of FWF members Albiro and Haglöfs. According to the worker who complained, the factory had closed down and had not paid the agreed severance pay.
An investigation performed by FWF and the member companies involved revealed that the complaint was grounded. After being prompted by the companies, the factory did pay the workers all of the wages that were due. Mediation by the labour department had resulted in a severance package, and while this package was not compliant with the labour law, it was accepted by the workers. Therefore, no further remediation was required. The complainant confirmed the receipt of the agreed wages.Download
