On 3 September 2016, a report was issued that questioned the working practices of an Asos distribution centre. According to the report workers at the factory are subject to frequent work searches and prolonged surveillance which has resulted in workers refusing to take sick days, holidays or toilet breaks in the fear of being dismissed. The report further suggests that workers are not being paid for overtime and are docked wages for arriving late to work.
The employer has dismissed the claims. However, in light of the allegations, the Commons Business, Innovation and Skills Select Committee, has vowed to investigate the matter at a later date.
