Adidas: Dynamic Industry Precision Corp. Poor Factory Conditions

Dynamic Precision Industry Corp., a Taiwanese sportswear supplier, is accused of committing human and labor rights violations at its Guangzhou, China, factory that produced golf clubs for adidas prior to its recent halt in production. Approximately 100 employees reported incidents of Benzene poisoning, hearing loss, pneumoconiosis, and hand-arm vibration syndrome (HAVS).

Factory management laid off affected workers with severance packages instead of offering remedies. If employees refused the package, their wages were cut. Ultimately, factory production was halted.[1]
