Final REPORT COMPLAINT IN China AT FACTORY SUPPLYING Kwintet
On 7 November 2013 FWF received a complaint regarding several standards of FWF’s Code of Labour Practices in which the worker referred to a recently conducted audit.
The first step was to check whether the audit the plaintiff referred to was initiated by Kwintet, which was not the case. Kwintet did an annual audit on 28 February and 1 March 2013 and shared the report with FWF. After reviewing the report, they concluded the findings from the complaint did not appear in their report. In consultation with Kwintet, FWF decided to schedule an audit to investigate the status by a Fair Wear Foundation audit team of which the findings can be read in this document. Kwintet is requested to analyse and reduce excessive overtime at the supplier.
