  • Married women are being excluded from job opportunities at Foxconn’s iPhone factory in India.
  • The discrimination is driven by perceived family responsibilities and societal pressures.
  • Despite company policies prohibiting discrimination, the practice has persisted.

Married women in India are facing discrimination when trying to work at Foxconn’s iPhone factory. According to a report by Reuters, women are being turned away from job opportunities simply because of their marital status. This practice is despite both Apple and Foxconn having policies in place that prohibit discrimination based on marital status.
The report highlights the story of two sisters who were rejected from jobs at the factory after being asked if they were married. A former HR executive at Foxconn India confirmed that the company views married women as “risk factors” due to family responsibilities and potential pregnancies. However, both Apple and Foxconn have denied allegations of employment discrimination and claim to have addressed these issues.
