Samsung's China Suppliers Failing Work Rules

Samsung Electronics, as part of its annual sustainability report, is taking almost sixty of its suppliers to task for failing to ensure proper work conditions.

In its annual sustainability report published on its website this week, the Korean smartphone maker said the majority of its suppliers did not comply with legally permitted work hours in China, according to a Bloomberg report. The company said 40 suppliers failed to hold evacuation drills while 50 demonstrated "inadequate efforts" in rolling out emergency response.
