Samsung agrees compensation over chip worker illnesses
Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. has agreed to pay compensation of up to 150 million won (about US$132,000) per illness over alleged work-related illnesses and deaths in semiconductor manufacturing that date back more than a decade.

A Korean feature film called Another Promise, released in 2014, portrays Sang-gi Hwang's struggle to show his daughter death from leukemia was the result of working conditions.

According to a Yonhap report, the settlement has sought to provide compensation as widely as possible while reducing the amount on offer to each individual, in part to reflect that the links between the working environment as it existed back then and subsequent diseases is not certain

Samsung will provide the maximum compensation to those suffering from leukemia and different amounts for other conditions including miscarriage. The compensation also covers congenital diseases suffered by the children of workers.

In July 2015 Samsung agreed to set up a 100-billion won (about $85 million) fund to provide support to victims and their families and to pay for preventative measures.
