Apple (AAPL) - Get Report on Monday, September 9, denied most of the accusations leveled against it and manufacturer Foxconn by New York-based watchdog group China Labor Watch regarding its Chinese operations, and how workers who assemble iPhones are treated.

In a report published on Sunday, China Labor Watch accused the iPhone maker and its production partner of numerous labor-law infractions at its factory in Zhengzhou, China, including that more than half of the workers there are temporary, or "dispatch."

Apple denies the allegations, saying it has confirmed all workers "are being compensated appropriately, including any overtime wages and bonuses, all overtime work was voluntary and there was no evidence of forced labor."
