Asos hits back at claims of employee mistreatment Online fashion retailer Asos has hit back at claims of poor working conditions at its Barnsley warehouse, saying it takes the welfare of its staff "very seriously".
Chief executiveNick Beighton saidthat although he acknowledged that in "a large facility" such as Barnsley "not everything is going to be perfect all kate spade warehouse sale the time", the company was committed to treating its workers well. Mr Beighton added that running the warehouse like an "employer from Victorian times" would not be practical and would not kate spade wallet bag lead to a productive environment. Last week Buzzfeed published its findings from an investigation around rules which employees claim discourages them from stopping to drink water or use the kate spade new york purse toilet and "exploitative" contracts, which includeshiftsbeing ended without notice. Global logistics giant XPO, which runs the Asos warehouse, also works with Transline, the staffing agency that was also heavily criticised by MPs in their inquiry into Sports Direct earlier this year. Mr Beighton denied the accusations, saying he was "disappointed that inaccurate and misleading things have been said about how we manage our warehouse". Asos, which is forecast to make 1.4bn of sales this year, today published a list of its policies and processes, which include paying kate spade canada website above the statutory National Living Wage, currently 7.20 an hour, and not using zero hour contracts, in a bid to counter the allegations.

"We take exception to the suggestion that we are secretive and exploit people," Mr Beighton added. "We do not pretend to get everything right all the time, but the picture being painted of how we run our warehouse is very wrong.
" He said that the company had invested 81m into the Barnsley warehouse since 2011, and plans to invest another 23m over the next 12 months. Asos came under fire for allegedly implementing unachievable performance targets for its staff, but Mr Beighton said that targets were "constantly reviewed" and that the company recognised they will not always be hit. The business defended searching its staff, and said it only searched 2pc of workers each day: "We recognise this is a highly emotive issue and if handled insensitively, is invasive and offensive," the company said.
