Final REPORT COMPLAINT IN China AT FACTORY SUPPLYING Outdoor SPorts
On 9 March 2014 FWF’s complaints handler in China received a complaint from a worker from a factory supplying Outdoor & Sports. The complaint related to FWF’s labour standards ’employment is freely chosen’ and ‘payment of a living wage’.
Plaintiff complained she asked for resignation which was not approved by the factory. Thereafter, the plaintiff left the factory on her own initiative and stated the factory did not pay her wage of Jan and Feb 2014.
Outdoor & Sports immediately contacted the supplier and received a reply the same day. After investigation, FWF found the case not grounded. Both factory management and plaintiff confirmed that the plaintiff did not follow the 30 days’ notice and did indeed recieve the correct salary. The plaintiff thanked FWF for explaining the side of the factory after which she understood her rights and accepted the outcome.Download
