Foxconn, the manufacturer of iPhones, has been cleared of discrimination charges by the regional labour commissioner in Chennai. The investigation was conducted after reports emerged that the company was discriminating against married women in its hiring process. However, the labour commissioner found no evidence to support these claims.
The investigation revealed that Foxconn employs a significant number of women, with 33,360 out of 41,281 employees being women. Of these, 2,750 are married women, which is around 8% of the total female workforce. The labour inspectors also interviewed 40 married women employees who did not report any discrimination.
The labour commissioner’s report will now be submitted to the National Human Rights Commission after the state government’s response. Foxconn had earlier denied the allegations of discrimination, stating that 25% of its recent hires are married women. The company also claimed that it is the largest female employer in India’s manufacturing sector.
