‘No extramarital affair’, Chinese company threatens to fire employees for cheating; read memo – Times of India

A Zhejiang-based company has reportedly announced the “extramarital affairs prohibition” order. According to a report in Jimu News, the warning applies to all married employees. The company passed the order in a staff rule recently.
“To strengthen the company’s inner management, to advocate a corporate culture of being loyal to family and love between a husband and wife, to better protect the family and to focus on work, all employees who are married are barred from vicious behaviours like having an extramarital affair or keeping a mistress,” stated a company document explaining the rule to staff.
“Anyone found violating this stipulation will be fired. We hope all staff can have correct love values and try to become good employees with four ‘Nos’ – no illicit relationship, no mistress, no extramarital affair and no divorce,” added the company.
Reason behind the termination rule unclear
It is not unclear what has made the company go for this new rule. The company’s affair ban announcement has received mixed responses on mainland social media. The decision to adopt the extreme measure has divided the public opinion.
According to a report in the South China Post (SCMP), a married senior executive at a state-owned oil company in China was fired recently after he was filmed holding hands with a woman who was not his wife. The executive was fired after his photos went viral on social media.
