Apple has updated its Supplier Responsibility report with details on its progress to addressing excessive work hours.

Addressing excessive work hours.
Ending the industry practice of excessive overtime is a top priority for Apple in 2012. Our approach to reducing excessive working hours has evolved over the years from a small seed program into a comprehensive approach that interlinks training, management consultation, integration with procurement decisions, and verification of work-hour practices and systems.

Going deep into our supply chain, we now follow weekly supplier data for over 1,000,000 workers.

In limited peak periods, we allow work beyond the 60 hour limit for those employees that volunteer to do so.
