Boohoo changes its auditing model for suppliers

YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2021-08-03 14:01:11 – United Kingdom

Online fashion retailer Boohoo, said that over the next 12 months, it will transition all of its suppliers to a new auditing methodology. This was in reaction to allegations of poor labor practices and supplier chain issues.

After the British press exposed them for poor industrial working conditions and cheap salaries, the London-based business commixed a review in July. Boohoo was only paying their garment employees the equivalent of $4.89 per hour.

Boohoo was one of the fastest-growing retailers in the UK prior to the epidemic. The New York Times, on the other hand, referred to the firm as “the newest face of worker exploitation” in 2020.

Employees working without adequate COVID-19 protection equipment and no social distancing measures in place to decrease employees' risk of contracting COVID-19 were among the allegations leveled against Boohoo, in addition to poor salaries.

According to a statement from Boohoo, suppliers are inspected more regularly, subcontracting has been eliminated, items may only be acquired from our approved supplier list; obligatory whistle-blower helplines have been created at every supplier.
