Screen supplier Biel Crystal Manufactory has been accused of violating workers’ rights within its Chinese factories.
The manufacturer, which supplies iPhone screens to tech giant Apple, allegedly abuses its workers in a number of ways. According to a report by the Students Scholars Against Corporate Misbehaviour (SACOM), employees are forced to work 11-hour shifts with only a single day off each month.
In addition, the Hong Kong-based rights group also claims that safety standards are not up to par. Employees of Biel Crystal Manufactory often become injured in the workplace and then are denied compensation. Employees also are fined or fired for failing to reach production targets or for falling asleep or breaking glass.
