Better Work Jordan: 4th Compliance Synthesis Report

11 Dec 2012

Better Work produces public synthesis reports for each country programme up to two times per year. The goal of these reports is to provide transparent information for all stakeholders regarding working conditions in factories participating in the programme.

Better Work Jordan released its first public synthesis report in May 2010. In February 2011, Better Work Jordan published its second synthesis report; the third report was published in March 2012. The present report illustrates the findings of the assessments carried out between September 2011 and September 2012 by Better Work Jordan in 52 factories. Of these, 14 factories have been visited twice, 14 factories have been visited three times, and one has been assessed four times.

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 eight labour standards clusters: four based on ILO core labour standards regarding child labour, forced labour, 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).
