Initial assessment results highlighted the following:
In the areas of core labour standards:
♦ Child Labour: There were three findings under the child labour cluster related to employers not having a system in place to verify the age of workers prior to hiring.
♦ Discrimination: With respect to discrimination, most factories (92%) are non-compliant in this cluster due to not recruiting at least 1% of their workers being people with disabilities.
♦ Forced Labour: No factory was non-compliant with respect to forced labour. The main noncompliance findings with respect to collective bargaining (55%) was that workers were not informed about the contents of the agreements, employers do not implement the agreement and/or the agreement had conditions that were less favourable than the law.
♦ Compensation: Incorrect overtime payment (78%) and insufficient social security benefits (60%) were the main areas of non-compliance with respect to remuneration.
♦ Contract and Human Resources: Findings of subcontractors and workers not receiving contracts (88%) and weak bipartite committees (85%) reflect poor contracting procedures and a lack of commitment to engage in social dialogue.
♦ Sexual Harassment: Of significant concern was that in eight factories, workers raised concerns about harassment, sexual harassment and bullying in the workplace.
♦ OSH: Most factories continue to be non-compliant with respect to OSH, with all factories not being fully prepared for an emergency.
