This report provides a snapshot of the non-compliance findings during the reporting period in factories participating to Better Work Jordan. The data collected illustrate compliance with labor standards according to eight clusters: four based on ILO core labor standards regarding child labor, forced labor, discrimination, and freedom of association and collective bargaining, and four indicators based on national law regarding working conditions (compensation, contracts and human resources, occupational safety and health, and working time).
The major findings emerging from the data are as follows:
discriminatory practice by August-2017. It is worth mentioning that starting in January 2016, two factories have proactively eliminated this compensation-based discrimination by implementing all the conditions of the Addendum. The other major non-compliance here is the hiring of disabled workers. Though all factories have hired disabled workers, many fall slightly short of the legal requirement, which has resulted in non-compliance.
Better Work publishes compliance synthesis reports for each of its country programmes, presenting analysis of non-compliance at the aggregate level. The goal of these reports is to provide transparent information for all programme stakeholders regarding working conditions in the factories participating in the programme.
