Despite word from Foxconn that Apple has completed its audit of the Chinese iPod factory, Apple says it continues to investigate the working conditions. “We are still investigating the working conditions at Foxconn’s manufacturing plant in Longhua,” said Apple spokesman Steve Dowling. “This is a thorough audit, which includes employee working and living conditions, interviews of employees and managers, compliance with overtime and wage regulations, and other areas as necessary to insure adherence to Apple’s supplier code of conduct. Apple’s supplier code of conduct sets the bar higher than accepted industry standards and we take allegations of noncompliance very seriously.”
