ASOS, which has become one of the U.K.’s leading online retailers recording a first-half sales of 667 million ($859 million), has however called these reports ‘inaccurate and misleading’. “There have been a number of allegations about the working conditions at our warehouse in Barnsley that are inaccurate, misleading or based on out of date information,” a spokesperson at ASOS told CNBC via email. “This upsets us, but more importantly, it upsets the people who work there. Those who seek to portray the warehouse as an awful place to work never mention the positive work we do in conjunction with XPO, like the 50 different learning and development programs offered, free mental health support and awareness training, subsidized food in a newly renovated canteen, or the 3 million spent on a cooling system to keep the temperature down during the summer,” an Asos spokesperson said.

Global logistics firm XPO that runs the distribution center by Asos has said these allegations were “false”. “To correct the record, the number of comfort breaks an employee takes is not a factor in evaluating performance. http://perfectlucyshaw.universitypunjabi.org/2016/08/30/whats-required-for-practical-strategies-in-interview-attireWe are also fully compliant with the national minimum wage and national living wage, and do not employ anyone in our warehouses on a zero-hours contract. We invited the independent public body ACAS to review our annualized hours scheme before we implemented it and were met with approval,” an XPO Logistics spokesperson told CNBC via email. The issue has not gone unnoticed by the members of parliament (MPs) who have said they will investigate the working conditions of Asos. Iain Wright, Chair of the House of Commons business, innovation, and skill select committee told BBC’s Newsbeat programme that the findings were “depressingly familiar.” Wright also said that the investigation into Asos will be part of a general inquiry looking into other U.K.

During the September JLARC meeting, Rep. Gerry Pollet, D-Seattle, wondered why the survey focused solely on governments responding to records requests rather than seeking input from those who request records. Rather than asking just governments, what about asking the requesting community? Pollet asked. Senior performance auditor Tania Fleming told The News Tribune in a recent interview that such an effort was beyond the scope of the survey commissioned by state lawmakers, but added that the auditors staff members sought input from open-records advocates. We did speak with a number of stakeholders on both sides, she said. So not only governments but advocates from the media and others. We tried to incorporate some of the ideas and thoughts and concerns from the requesting community. We did speak with a number of stakeholders on both sides.
