Abstract

There have been multiple calls to examine the issues surrounding exploitation of workers in Ready Made Factories in Bangladesh in their own right. In response to their call this study presents a preliminary exploration into the social compliance system within RMG factories by taking support of the compliance theory established in management literature. In-depth interviews and observations of 50 workers and managers from three large RMG factories are used in the study. An initial guiding framework for social compliance system is developed to assess the capabilities and commitment of RMG workers and managers and suggests managerial implication to RMG firms on ways to socially comply with fair work practices in their factories.
