 Workers' Rights
There has been some controversy over the labour practices of Puma's suppliers .
Workers have cited such violations as:
-Excessive working hours and compulsory overtime: for example, workers in one Chinese factory reported being made to work between 120 and 180 hours of overtime per month in the peak season, without being paid overtime premiums as required by law.
-Excessive production targets, which workers are forced to be meet by working unpaid overtime.
-Women working to the point of exhaustion, which in some cases apparently led to them suffering miscarriages.
-Workers hired without proper employment contracts.
-Workers not represented by a union, and fearful of getting involved in union activities. 
A Mexican factory producing goods for Puma was shut down after workers attempted to form a union .
- PUMA (Austalia)
PUMA has paid to be accredited by the 'NO SWEAT SHOP LABEL'. Manufacturers Accredited to the HWCP (Home Workers Code of Practice) are entitled to use the No Sweat Shop label on their garments produced in Australia. The No Sweat Shop label is usually sewn into the garment’s seam alongside the washing instructions, but is sometimes also printed onto the actual garment. The decision whether to use the No Sweat Shop label is up to the Accredited companies.
The No Sweat Shop label is a user-friendly initiative that provides consumers with an identifiable mark to distinguish exploitation-free garments. When consumers see the No Sweat Shop label, they can be confident that the garment was produced in Australia and everyone involved in its production received at least the minimum legal standards.
