• Three managers of home improvement firm have been jailed after employee claimed staff were subjected to extreme punishments
• Video shows man being whipped with a belt and others drinking cups of yellow liquid
Three managers of a home improvement firm in southern China have been jailed after they forced staff to drink urine, eat insects and flogged them with belts because they did not meet sales targets, local media reported on Monday.
They were arrested after an employee of the company in Zunyi, Guizhou province claimed staff had been subjected to extreme punishments in a post on social media site Weibo last week. The hashtag “employees who failed to meet their goals forced to drink urine” has since been viewed almost 540,000 times.
