“One death is one too many”

The Institute for Occupational Health and Safety Development ( extends condolences to the family and survivors of Lee Yunjeong, 32 years old, who died after being diagnosed last 2010 of malignant brain cancer. Lee worked for Samsung Semiconductor Assembly & Test factory in Onyang, South Korea for six years from 1997 to 2003. She is the 55th Samsung worker who have died from disease.

Lee filed for compensation but was denied by the Korean government, prompting her to file a lawsuit against the decision last year. Unfortunately, she succumbed to her disease before any decision is made on her case.

We hope her family will be compensated and see justice served.
