NYU Admits That Worker Protections at Shanghai Campus Weren’t Followed

The Chronicle of Higher Education
December 2nd, 2014

New York University has conceded that policies it established to protect workers on its Shanghai campus were not observed, The New York Times reports. The admission comes six months after the Times reported on the harsh conditions experienced by workers who were hired to build the university’s other major international campus, in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
The university hired a company to monitor working conditions at the campus in China, but it “did not perform as expansive a compliance review as NYU desired, nor did they produce the detailed report that NYU requested,” said a college spokesman, John Beckman, in an email to the Times. This past summer, the university hired another company to review working conditions on the campus, and the results of that review are expected to be published by the end of the year.
