Fainting common in H&M’s Cambodia factories

Written by Brett Mathews

PHNOM PENH - Fainting was one of several labour compliance concerns among workers at four key Cambodian H&M suppliers – three of them platinum – according to research by the Centre for Alliance of Labour & Human Rights. The NGO interviewed garment factory workers from Phnom Penh and surrounding provinces to gain an insight into how the factories they worked at performed in the field of wages, freedom of association, contracts, and overtime, as well as the prevalence of faintings on the factory floor - an issue with which Cambodia has become synonymous in recent years. In manyof these areas, H&M supplier factories were found to be violating the Swedish retail giant's code of conduct.
