Some of Europe's biggest stores are failing to stem the abuse of Syrian refugees who work in the Turkish factories that supply their clothes, a business pressure group said on Friday. The Business and Human Rights Resource Centre (BHRRC) called on the worst offenders - from fashion icon Topshop to discounter Aldi - to better protect refugee workers who have fled war only to suffer workplace exploitation in their new home. Low wages, discrimination and poor conditions are common for Syrian refugees working in Turkey's multi-billion dollar garment industry, where child labour is also a problem, said the BHRRC.
The founders of British fashion retailer SuperGroup (Frankfurt: 49S.F - news) , owner of the Superdry brand, have launched an incentive plan that would see them share their wealth with the firm's 4,500 employees - if its share price rises significantly. SuperGroup detailed the move, which forms part of its strategy to attract and retain talent, at its annual shareholders' meeting on Tuesday. The scheme, which runs to September 2020, would see Julian Dunkerton and James Holder, transfer into a trust 20 percent of their gain from any increase in the group's share price over 18 pounds ($23.9).

SuperGroup (Frankfurt: 49S.F - news) , the British company behind the Superdry fashion brand, reported a 27 percent rise in annual revenue and said it would meet profit forecasts, helped by its overseas expansion and a weaker pound. The firm, whose trademark jackets, hooded tops and jogging bottoms are popular with teenagers and twenty-somethings, said on Thursday currency changes accounted for about one third of the revenue growth in both its retail and wholesale operations. Shares in the company, which have increased 31 percent over the last year, fell almost 7 percent on Thursday on the lack of a profit upgrade and declining margins.
