New Era Cap Company announced that the Fair Labor Association has elevated the company to Category A membership, up from Category B membership. New Era became a member of the FLA, in Category B standing, in September 2002.

FLA Category A-members are expected to adhere to the organization's highest level of standards for workplace code to conduct implementation, monitoring and remediation at their facilities and those of their subcontractors.

“I am pleased that the Fair Labor Association has elevated New Era Cap to Category A-membership,” said Christopher H. Koch, CEO, New Era Cap Co., Inc. “New Era's yearlong relationship with the FLA has enhanced our existing commitment to excellent workplace conditions. It is encouraging to see that our efforts during the past 12 months have resulted in New Era meeting the FLA's Category A criteria in such a short time period.”
