Boohoo defends supply chain practices after Leicester report
Jul 2, 2020
Britain's Boohoo defended its supply chain practices on Thursday after a garment workers' rights group said the online fashion retailer was putting workers at risk of coronavirus infection in its Leicester factories.
Labour Behind the Label, which campaigns for workers' right, said in a report it received reports of "workers being forced to come into work while sick with COVID-19, workers wishing to isolate being denied pay, factories operating illegally throughout lockdown".
"The boohoo group will not tolerate any incidence of non-compliance especially in relation to the treatment of workers within our supply chain and we have terminated relationships with suppliers where evidence of this is found," Boohoo said, adding it would investigate the allegations and taken any necessary action.
