China Complaint Haglöfs, Kjus September 2016

Initial report of complaint at factory in China supplying Haglöfs and Kjus

On 20 September 2016, a worker contacted FWF claiming that the factory delays worker payments often, and for up to three months. The worker also claimed that there is excessive overtime for up to 11 or 12 hours a day, and sometimes without getting a rest day. The complainant said that as of 20 September, they had had approximately 10 days off. Workers who refuse to work overtime can do so without penalty but are subject to warnings from their supervisors.

The case is under investigation. The claims made by the complainant are supported by an audit from November 2015 where excessive overtime and late payment were found.
