Bribery claims spark Foxconn investigation in China

Foxconn, if you don’t already know, is best known for its role in production of various Apple products, including the iPad and iPhone. The production plant has received a lot of bad press over the years, not least for child slavery and poor working conditions. Now, the company is facing an investigation of claims of bribery within the country.

It seems that an unknown number of employees in its Chinese branch have bribed supply chain companies. Foxconn has stated this as an issue that it won’t take lightly, saying that any employees found committing illegal acts will face prosecution.

What will come of this, we don’t yet know, but preventing commercial bribery will be a very tough war for Foxconn, since it is not uncommon for this to happen to foreign companies with business in China.
