A labor rights group has accused a supplier of Apple Incorporated in China of misconduct, including withholding employees' pay and environmental violations.
China Labor Watch issued a report Monday saying it found violations of the law and of Apple's pledges about working conditions at facilities operated by Pegatron Corporation, a Taiwanese company.
Apple said in a statement that it was committed to providing safe and fair working conditions and would investigate the claims. Pegatron, in a separate statement, also promised to investigate.
Apple said one of its investigators confirmed one claim in the report - that Pegatron was holding the identity cards of some workers - and ordered the company to stop.
