These workers were employed by a company called Hey Tekstil.
From November 2011 to February 2012, the company did not pay them for their last three months of work, fired them without notice, and subsequently failed to pay them their legally-mandated severance and notification payments.
Li & Fung, one of the largest apparel sourcing companies in the world based in Hong Kong, was Hey Tekstil’s primary business partner at the time of the factory’s closure, and refuses to pay over 2000 Hey Tekstil workers 4.7 million euros.
