Labour laws violated by Foxconn to meet Apple demand for the iPhone 11

Foxconn is (yet again) reported to be breaking laws in China to keep up with demand for the iPhone 11 by Apple. Approximately 50% of the Foxconn workforce comprise part timers, even though the law states that that number can only be up to 1%. The issue is being worked on by Apple and Foxconn, although in reality, any change to the workforce could directly impact shipments of the iPhone 11.

According to the Chinese Labor Watch, Foxconn is forcing its workers to do overtime, although based on Apple’s investigation, all the overtime shifts are on a voluntary basis. While Apple is being truthful in this case, some of the staff comprise students, which the law prohibits from taking additional hours. In response, Apple assured that it no longer has students working overtime.

Regardless, what is clear is that Apple and Foxconn are ensuring that orders for the iPhone 11 are fulfilled, with Cupertino confident sales for 2019 will improve over last year’s.
