Final report of a complaint at a factory in Turkey that supplies Maier Sports – June 2017
A complainant needed time off to take care of their children’s health. Factory management agreed to give the individual some flexibility as they were interested in the person’s skills. However, after a salary raise the complainant realised they were being paid at a lower level of skill, and thought this was because of the time they needed to take off due to child care.
Management did not want to increase the wages of the complainant nor did they want to pay compensation to the worker for leaving the factory. In the end, the complainant was dismissed and is at home, caring for their children.Download
