Samsung agrees to payouts after worker deaths
The death of a 23-year-old former Samsung worker has led to the company agreeing a major compensation deal. It organised sit-in protests at various Samsung sites to pressure the company into the deal. It alleged there was a link between the working conditions Samsung maintained and diseases, which also included brain tumours and multiple sclerosis. The deal extends to both workers directly employed by Samsung as well as those who were hired via sub-contractors. Sums will be determined by the illnesses involved and length of time the person worked at the company's plants.
