Last week watchdog China Labor Watch published an investigation into Samsungs supply chain that found evidence of child labor at the Shinyang Electronics factory in Dongguan, China. The discovery contradicted Samsungs own self-audit, and now the Korean company has suspended business with the supplier after beginning a follow-up investigation. Samsung says Chinese authorities are also looking into the allegations. In a statement, Samsung said it discovered that instances of illegal hiring process may have taken place at the Dongguan factory on June 29th, despite conducting audits at the location three times since 2013 and most recently on June 25th this year.
