UK’s Boohoo has defended its supply chain practices after it came under fire for allegedly putting workers at risk of infection in its Leicester factories.

“The boohoo group will not tolerate any incidence of non-compliance especially in relation to the treatment of workers within our supply chain and we have terminated relationships with suppliers where evidence of this is found,” Boohoo said, adding it would investigate the allegations and take any necessary action.

The accusations to the online fashion retailer were gathered by the workers’ rights group Labour Behind the Label which said it received reports of employees being forced to come into work while sick with COVID-19 and factories operating illegally throughout lockdown.
