Project JUST was created to transform the fashion industry into a transparent, accountable and sustainable system that celebrates the stories, the people and the resources behind the clothing.

To do so, they developed a well-regarded methodology for researching brands and their sustainability practices for their searchable brand directory. The directory provides comparable research on brands to empower shoppers to make more informed and ethical purchasing decisions and to put pressure on brands to improve their practices.

While Project JUST dissolved in 2018, the research methodology can be continued through data contributions on WikiRate. 

This metric falls within the Social section of questions, which looks at how a brand is treating the people in its supply chain.

The Ethical Trading Initiative and the Fair Labor Association stipulate that employers must comply with national laws on overtime. Working hours, excluding overtime, must be limited to 8 hours a days, 48 hours per week. Apart from in exceptional circumstances, working hours should not exceed 60 hours per week (12 hours of overtime on top of the 48-hour working week). Workers should also be given one day off in each 7-day period, or 2 days off within each 14 day period. 


Methodology

Researchers will need to comb through all information about a brand that is publicly available, either self-reported OR third-party reported information for the Project JUST category: Social

We suggest familiarizing yourself with the brand’s reporting by visiting the brand’s website, or Annual, Integrated or CR Reports to find a code prohibiting excessive overtime.

The following categorical answer options are designed to cover all possible answers to this question - i.e. Unknown is never a correct answer. Once found, select one of the below answer options for the correct year you are researching, and submit.

- Yes, and there is third party evidence of compliance
- Yes, and the brand provides evidence of compliance
- Yes, and the brand does not provide evidence of compliance
- Yes, and there is third party evidence of non-compliance
- No
