A manufacturer of rubber gloves facing a US import ban over alleged labour abuses has agreed to reimburse its workers for deductions from wages and fines levied on them, according to a migrant rights activist.

Letters were issued to the workers [...] in which the company also agreed to part-recompensation of recruitment fees the workers had paid to agents and interest on past recruitment fees, said activist Andy Hall.

He said the letter stated that the company would also pay an ex-gratia sum to current and former workers for any related costs or financial loss incurred during their employment with the company.
