Workweeks exceeding 60 hours have been a persistent problem for the electronics

industry, and reducing excessive overtime remains a priority for Apple. We limit

workweeks to 60 hours except in unusual circumstances. And all overtime must

be absolutely voluntary. To help protect the people who make our products from

working excessive hours, we track work hours weekly for over one million people in

our supply chain — a program we started in 2011.

While working hours can be difcult for Apple and our suppliers to predict, we require

suppliers to notify us in advance when they anticipate that production plans might

cause high working hours. That way, we can get ahead of problems and work with

both the supplier and Apple’s procurement teams to fnd the best solutions.

As a result of Apple’s and our suppliers’ eforts, our suppliers achieved an average of

95 percent compliance across all workweeks in 2013. The average hours worked per

week was under 50 for all employees. In 2013 we also tracked employees working

at least 40 hours, and found they worked an average of 54 hours per week. Over

97 percent of all workweeks met our requirement of at least one day of rest every

seven days.
