Boohoo has appointed PKF Littlejohn as its auditor after the resignation of PwC in October in the wake of a scandal over working conditions at some suppliers to the fast-fashion e-tailer.
The company came under scrutiny earlier this year after allegations that workers making Boohoo clothes were paid below the minimum wage.
A company-commissioned external review found that although the company had not “intentionally” profited from the abuses, it had been aware of them and failed to act quickly enough.
Boohoo in November hired Brian Leveson, a retired judge, to monitor efforts to improve conditions in its U.K. supply chain. The company also pledged to publish a full list of suppliers by March.
Founder Mahmud Kamani last week told a British parliamentary hearing that Boohoo had stopped working with 64 suppliers in Leicester, a major fashion industry supply hub, and conducted 400 unannounced audits since 2019.
