Advanced Workshop: Compensation & Working Time - China28/05/2013Paying factory workers according to what the law requires is often not done. Having labour work from 60 to 80 hours per week is common. This Advanced Workshop examines the challenges of improper pay and excessive overtime. It looks at the reasons for this behaviour, what the local law mandates and how “best practice” compensation tools can help improve these challenges.Getting factories to respect wage and work hour legislation is complex. It invariably involves examining the buying and pricing practices of members and the sales strategy and production costs of their suppliers. (To be addressed in a future workshop). Nonetheless, this workshop equips factories to better understand labour law and compensation tools. It has helped factories to calculate pay more accurately and phase out unlawful practices like wage penalties. It has helped factories to move one step closer to be compliant with compensation laws.This one day workshop is designed for suppliers and subcontractors who have had their factories audited and are familiar with the BSCI program.Suitable attendees for this session are mid to senior level factory managers who plan production schedules or compensation practices.More information on how to register can be found on the BSCI Platform.GuangzhouMandarinProducers of BSCI Participants
