The Students & Scholars Against Corporate Misbehaviour (SACOM) report said Biel Crystal, which makes iPhone screens, requires its employees to work 11-hour shifts, seven days a week, with only one day off each month. SACOM is a a Hong Kong rights group.
Employees are also often injured and not given reasonable compensation and have to sign blank contracts, the group says. Biel Crystal hasn't commented.
