Korea investigates on on the working conditions of employees at Samsung Electronics
The Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy on Monday failed to determine whether reports on the working conditions of employees at Samsung Electronics factories contain any technology-related information that could deal a heavy blow to the semiconductor manufacturer if made public.
The world’s top chipmaker asked the ministry last month to review the content of the so-called work environment assessment result report, which contains information about the extent to which workers are exposed to hazardous materials and the frequency of exposure at its chip plants. The request came after the Ministry of Employment and Labor ordered Samsung to disclose the reports for chipmaking facilities in Onyang, South Chungcheong, and a smartphone plant in Gumi, North Gyeongsang, by Thursday.
