The US company also rued that China Labor Watch did not contact them directly, preferring instead to report such irregularities through press releases.

In 2015, the non-profit organisation released a report detailing breaches by five toymakers in China, all of which had contracts with Disney and other companies.

Disney approved its plan for international labour standards in 1996 and has 120 employees in 12 countries, tasked with improving the working conditions of over 30,000 factories associated with it.

Close to 28 per cent of the plants working with Disney are located in China.
