Webinar on employment conditions in the electronics sector

8 May 2018

A webinar organised by Electronics Watch will take place on Tuesday the 29th of May 11am - 12pm, looking at the specific links between employee suicides and employment conditions.

Titled "The Missing Link: Suicide & Employment Conditions in the Chinese Electronics Sector", the webinar is based on a forthcoming report by the Economic Rights Institute and Electronics Watch. Webinar participants will be guided through the impacts on human health of particular employment conditions, including income, shift work, the speed and intensity of work, overtime, time-off, respect, discipline and violence, and will provide recommendations on what industry, the Chinese government, and public buyers can and should do to mitigate these risk.

Electronics Watch is also currently working with ICLEI and other partners on the Make ICT Fair project, which aims to improve the lives of workers impacted in ICT supply chains. This project began in November 2017 and will run for three years.
