Samsung Denies Suppliers in China Use Child Labor

Introducing more stringent labor rules anyway

|

The Korean giant said its own investigation had not corroborated the allegations but that it would introduce new rules including more stringent identity checks. In future contracts will be immediately terminated if evidence of child labour is uncovered, it added.

The audit of 105 Chinese suppliers and 65,000 workers did find violations of overtime laws. Samsung said it would allow them two years to "resolve" their practices.
