MAE SOT - Supermarket giant Tesco is facing a landmark legal case from former migrant garment workers at a Thai factory in its supply chain who claim they were made to work 99-hour weeks for illegally low pay in dangerous conditions.

A total of 130 former workers of the VK Garment Factory in the city of Mae Sot are suing Tesco for 'unjust enrichment', and also auditors Intertek for alleged negligence in failing to uncover their plight.

The case, involving migrant workers from Myanmar who produced F+F jeans for Tesco stores in Thailand between 2017 and 2020, is believed to be the first time a UK company has been threatened with litigation in the English courts over a garment factory in its global supply chain.
