Vietnam: Reduced working hours & mass layoffs reported at PouYuen Vietnam; incl. co. responses

In December 2022, it was reported that PouYuen Vietnam had asked 20,000 workers to take alternative Saturdays off from December to February, due to plummeting business.

In September 2023, it was reported that in February 2023, Pou Yuen Vietnam had laid off more than 2,300 workers, and then sacked more than 6,000 others in June, citing a lack of orders. These dismissals significantly impacted older workers, with 54% of dismissed workers in February being over 40 years old, and over 50% of workers dismissed in June being over 40 years old.

In March 2024, Business & Human Rights Resource Centre invited adidas, Amer Sports, Asics, Authentic Brands (for Reebok), KMD Brands, LaCoste, Mizuno, New Balance, Nike, VF Corp to respond. The responses can be found below.
