Better Work Jordan released its first public synthesis report in May 2010, covering the first group of 15 factories assessed by the programme. In February 2011, Better Work Jordan published its second synthesis report covering 24 factories. This, the third synthesis report illustrates the findings of the assessments carried out between February and December 2011 by Better Work Jordan in 27 factories, which employ a total of 23,348 workers of the approximately 42,000 in the industry. Of these, nine have received a second assessment visit and seven have received a third assessment visit. The sample is characterized by factories employing an average of 865 workers, 75% of whom are migrant workers and 66% of whom are women (on average).
This document provides a snapshot of the non-compliance findings in factories participating to Better Work Jordan during the reporting period. The data collected illustrate non-compliance within eight labour standards clusters: four based on ILO core labour standards regarding child labour, forced labour, discrimination, and freedom of association and collective bargaining, and four indicators based on national law of working conditions (compensation, contracts and human resources, occupational safety and health, and working time).
