As the world's largest maker of semiconductors, televisions, and intelligent mechanisms, Samsung says it "respects the basic human rights of all employees" and does not hire minors. It also says the company respects local laws and protects the health of its employees.
Just last year, France issued the "corporate duty vigilance law", requiring that multinationals selling products in France must respect human rights and protect the environment in the areas they operate.

After assessing the complaint, the prosecutor in Paris will decide whether to start a preliminary investigation or not to accept it.
