Samsung apologises to sick factory workers

Samsung has formally apologised to employees who fell sick or died after working in its factories. In the apology, Samsung president Kim Ki-nam said staff and families had "Suffered" because the South Korean company had been too slow to act. Earlier this month Samsung agreed a compensation deal for workers who fell ill while on its production lines. The apology follows a campaign to win redress for staff by Hwang Sang-ki, the father of one Samsung worker who died. All current or former staff who worked for Samsung and its sub-contractors on the chip and display lines in the Giheung factory in South Korea since 1984 can apply for compensation.
