After Xinjiang report: Beijing closes labor rights auditor Verité
Chinese authorities have shut down the Chinese partner of US labor law auditor Verité, as the Wall Street Journal reports. This move means the Shenzhen-based company will lose its authority to advise companies on labor rights issues in Chinese factories. Verité is a Massachusetts-based company affiliated with U.S. labor law organization Verité Inc. Its clients in China include companies such as Walt Disney and Apple. With the authorities' decision, Verité also loses its permission to conduct labor law audits and research in China for its clients.
