China: Foxconn accused of 'disguised layoffs' through forced job transfers, workers protest across multiple locations; incl. co. response

[Summary translation from Chinese to English translation provided by Business & Human Rights Resource Centre]

In March 2024, Foxconn's Zhengzhou factory reportedly launched the so-called "Wave Project," a controversial job transfer program that allegedly forces employees from non-manufacturing departments to work on production lines. The practice, which has been criticized as a form of disguised layoffs amid decreased global demand for electronic products, has sparked worker protests at various Foxconn factories, including Langfang, Longhua, and Zhoukou.

In May 2024, the Business & Human Rights Resource Centre invited Foxconn to respond to the allegation. Foxconn's response can be read in full below.
