Samsung said Monday it found instances of Chinese employees working overtime beyond legal hours and being fined for absence or tardiness.
China Labor Watch, a New York-based labor rights group, said in August that Samsung’s suppliers hired children and working conditions were “inhumane.” Samsung said its audit team found no child labor.
But Samsung said its suppliers must adopt new hiring procedures and it would cancel contracts if child labor is found in future.
It said it will eliminate illegal overtime by the end of 2014.
