China Complaint Filippa K September 2012

Final REPORT COMPLAINT IN china AT FACTORY SUPPLYING Filippa K

On 26 September 2012 FWF received a complaint from a worker working for a factory supplying Filippa K. The complaint related to the labour standards ‘reasonable hours of work’ and ‘payment of a living wage’, which are part of FWF’s Code of Labour Practices.

One of the workers informed the complaints handler that they were forced to continue working during a long national holiday, without getting the adequate compensation for working overtime on national holidays. Moreover the worker filed a complaint about the longs days the factory generally expects them to work.

After research conducted by FWF, Filippa K is expected to prioritise the correct payment of working overtime and to analyse their own production planning. FWF is monitoring this process closely and is in contact with the complaints handler to see how this evolves.
