New York University announced the hiring of an investigative firm to look into labor conditions for the workers who constructed its recently completed Abu Dhabi campus in the wake of a New York Times article documenting widespread abuses, the newspaper reported. The founder of the firm, Nardello & Company, declined to comment on details of the planned investigation but said he expects it will conclude by the end of the year.
The Abu Dhabi government entity that oversaw the campus construction, Tamkeen, selected Nardello & Company as the investigative firm.
