Of all the reasons to fire somebody, this has got to be among the most idiotic. As reported by China Daily:
Two women have been fired from their jobs for refusing to drink at a company party.
No doubt they would have been fired had they gotten shitfaced. Maybe each employee should get a breathalyzer, along with guidelines for the acceptable BAC range…
He, an executive manager of an auto parts company in Hanyang, and her assistant refused to drink alcohol when their boss made a toast at their company’s New Year party.
They were fired the next day on grounds of incompetence.
“This is not fair at all,” He, who joined the company just a month back, fumed after receiving her termination letter.
