Apple Inc supplier Hon Hai confirms death at China plant after watchdog reports suicide


Hon Hai, the worlds largest contract manufacturer of electronic products, is one of the largest private employers in China and has worked to improve labour conditions following a series of suicides in 2010-2011, mostly at its Shenzhen manufacturing operation.

The statement from Hon Hai, which goes by the trade name of Foxconn, came after watchdog China Labor Watch reported that a Foxconn worker committed suicide by jumping off a building at the Zhengzhou plant which makes Apple Incs iPhone products.



In a statement, Hon Hai said that a 28-year-old male employee was found dead outside a building at its campus in Zhengzhou in the early morning of Aug. 4.
