ITHACA - Apparel brands’ efforts to police their supply chains aren’t working because much of the information given to the auditors who inspect factories is inaccurate, according to researchers.

A report, by Cornell University’s School of Industrial and Labour Relations (ILR), said that apparel brands had for years promised to police their supply chains to root out unsafe conditions and worker abuse.
