Ansell and Kimberly-Clark Sued in US Federal Court by Trafficking and Forced Labor Victims from Malaysian Glove Company
A group of 13 Bangladeshi migrant workers who were trafficked into Malaysia and forced to work at a disposable glove manufacturing plant owned by Brightway Group today filed suit in the U.S. federal district court for the District of Columbia against Ansell and Kimberly-Clark Corporation (“KCC”), two major Brightway customers. The Plaintiffs seek to represent a class of the thousands of other workers who, like them, were subjected to the same systematic trafficking and forced labor scheme that Brightway utilized to staff its facilities.
