Following its initial investigation of Apple device manufacturer Foxconn back in March, the Fair Labor Association (FLA) has released a follow-up report detailing the company's progress in improving work conditions. Of the 360 actions required to be completed by July 1st, 2013, FLA representatives claim that Foxconn has completed 284, with most occurring on or ahead of schedule. The tasks ranged from reducing work hours to 60 per week, eliminating payroll discrepancies, and improving facility conditions. Foxconn has also made strides to bolster employee representation through union elections, and is allegedly on track to meet Chinese labor guidelines, which limits work to 40 hours per week with up to 9 hours of overtime. The FLA says that it will continue to work with Foxconn and Apple to ensure that the remaining 76 changes are made before the July 1st deadline.
