INTERMEDIATE REPORT OF COMPLAINT IN Turkey AT FACTORY THAT SUPPLIES Hessnatur
On June 2nd FWF received a complaint through the local hotline. The plaintiff claimed that the line supervisor limits the acces of workers to the in-house doctor. The complaint related to the labour standard ‘safe and healthy working conditions’ which is part of FWF’s Code of Labour Practices.
In the system as it is now, supervisors are in the position to allow or deny workers time off, and it is not registered which requests were denied. Actions required are communicating to all supervisors clearly that there shall be no limitation in access of workers to in-house factory doctor and outside medical services, and establishing a management system that allows registration of all requests of workers for time off, so that the implementation can be monitored.
