President and CEO of Device Solutions, Samsung Electronics, apologized in South Korea

CEO and President of Samsung’s Device Solutions Division, Kinam Kim, said in this week’s public apology that their effort was not enough to understand how hard the workers who were affected along with their families had to go through. According to the Associated Press, there is one important absence in the company’s apology was it admitting the conditions in its workplace caused the workers there to suffer illness to even death.

The company has received a lot of allegations of very toxic working conditions for many years, with it finally agreeing to pay a compensation with its workers back in July. According to Reuters, the Korean giant agreed to pay the workers who suffered many types of illness by being exposed to some chemicals at the factories of company factories up to ₩150 million (around Rs. 94.16 lakh) by 2028.

And all of the current and former employees of Samsung and also its contractors who worked at the display and semiconductor production plants of the company for over a year since 1984 can claim compensation for their illnesses.

In addition, Kim said that Samsung would issue compensation guidelines and an apology letter on Samsung official website by later this month and a law firm based in Seoul will be responsible for conducting the review process for all affected workers for their eligibility for the compensation.

Hwang Sang-gi, father of a girl used to work at a Samsung factory and died due to leukemia 11 years ago, is the founder of Sharps - a South Korean advocacy group said that nearly 200 workers at factories of the company got sick and 70 of them died later.

Hwang said in the news conference: “No apology would be enough when considering the deception and humiliation we experienced (from Samsung) over the past 11 years, the pain of suffering from occupational diseases, the pain of losing loved ones.”
