Case Summary

Hansoll Hyun closed without paying workers millions of dollars in legally mandated severance and other compensation. Prior to its closure, Hansoll Hyun produced university-licensed apparel for Gear for Sports (Hanesbrands). Other customers of the factory, for non-collegiate goods, included Abercrombie & Fitch, Hansoll Textile (a company with a similar name but no corporate relationship to Hansoll Hyun), and Kohl’s, among others. Gear for Sports and Hansoll Textile made substantial contributions, at the WRC’s urging, to remedy these labor rights violations. The payments have ameliorated enormous hardship and brightened the prospects of workers and their families.
