Foxconn denies reports of forced work on interns ahead of iPhone 5 launch

The company has denied accusations that it is forcing interns to work on new iPhones.

In an e-mail to Bloomberg, the manufacturer explained that an audit performed recently by the Fair Labor Association in three Foxconn facilities found “no evidence that any interns were pressured to participate.”

Foxconn has partnerships with several vocational schools in China but according to Bloomberg, “students are free to leave the internship program at any time.”

The Fair Labor Association wrote on its website that Foxconn’s “existing policies have been revised and appropriate clauses have been incorporated. These include the ability to leave the facility prior to the completion of the program.”

Chinese publications Beijing News and China Daily reported recently that some students from vocational schools were forced to work long hours at Foxconn on things like USB cables for Apple’s iPhone 5.

The publications wrote that students were told that in order to receive academic credits, they had to work at the local Foxconn plant.

The salary was about $244 a month and overtime hours were needed if they didn’t complete their tasks on time.
