Foxconn in intern scandal

December 2012

Contract electronics manufacturer Foxconn has disclosed that it has employed interns as young as 14 at one of its factories in China. The company, which serves a number of major IT brands and makes Apple’s iPhone, is working to comply with Chinese labour laws, a mammoth task given the prevailing compliance culture and its huge scale. Committing itself to a full investigation, the company said that employing such young interns was both “a violation of China’s labour law [and] of Foxconn policy”.
