Apple Inc. is facing allegations of violating worker rights, according to a recent investigation by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB). The NLRB found that Apple executives had engaged in activities that violated the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) and other labor laws.
The investigation found that Apple had failed to bargain in good faith with its employees and had interfered with their rights to organize and bargain collectively. The NLRB also found that Apple had violated the NLRA by implementing workplace rules that limited employee rights to communicate with each other and with the public.
In addition, the NLRB found that Apple had violated the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) by failing to pay its employees overtime pay. The FLSA also requires employers to provide workers with a safe and healthy working environment.
The NLRB has ordered Apple to pay back wages to its workers and to take steps to ensure that it complies with all applicable labor laws. Apple has agreed to comply with the order and has promised to improve its workplace practices.
The findings of the NLRB investigation come after Apple has faced criticism for its labor practices, including allegations of poor working conditions at its factories in China. Apple has denied the allegations and said that it is committed to protecting the rights of its workers.
