HP's response

HP’s standards of business conduct, extending to business and supply chain partners, require strict compliance with all applicable laws and social and environmental responsibility standards. HP regularly monitors the performance of its suppliers to review their compliance to HP’s expectations. HPconducted multiple assessments at NKG and is working to address concerns and drive improvement. We are working on the ground with Cal-Comp/NKG, who has since made notable improvements including returning workers their personal documentation, directly hiring contract workers and reimbursing workers for placement fees. Cal-Comp/NKG have improved their communication tools so that workers have a clearer understanding of payroll, recruitment and benefits during their employment. Contracts and communication throughout the facility are in workers’ native languages. HP is aware of the most recent Electronics Watch report and we are working with industry peers and a third-party audit firm to carry out a specialized assessment that looks further into the allegations highlighted in their report.
