Samsung to Investigate Child Labor Abuse Report

Samsung Electronics said Wednesday it will inspect a Chinese supplier alleged of exploiting child labor.

New York-based labor rights group China Labor Watch released a 31-page report Tuesday on HEG Electronics Co., a partner of the South Korean electronics behemoth, saying the Chinese firm employs children under the age of 16.

Following the allegations, Samsung dispatched a team of in-house inspectors from Samsung?s global headquarters in Seoul to the HEG facility in Huizhou. Samsung said that its inspectors would immediately launch an investigation, whose findings would determine the necessary measures to take in correcting any problems and issues that might be uncovered at HEG.
