Foxconn Pushing for Injured Employee to Be Taken Out of Hospital


An employee of Foxconn, Zhang Tingzhen, 26, had suffered an electric shock while repairing a light 12 feet up in the air back in 2011 and since has received five operations, is incontinent, can´t walk or talk right, and has lost his memory.

Due to the injuries sustained in the fall from repairing that light, half of Zhang´s brain has been removed and part of his skull has been replaced with artificial bone. Per Zhang´s doctors, he remains under risk of a brain hemorrhage.

Zhang´s father, Zhang Guangde, said, "They kept sending me SMSs every day to get my son out of hospital and to appear before an injury assessment body or they will stop paying all expenses, including his medical fees and our living expenses."

ASSESS this news: BLOCK this news. Reason:
  In the article..  
It states per Chinese law, this is legal. But per the Drs. and family, they have at least two years before an assessment needs to be made for dissability. And of course the company wants the employee to be moved to where he signed onto the company as the value of his injuries will be determined at a lower value..
I´m thinking it´s time to globally boycott Foxconn.

I´ve never bought a foxconn product and I never will.

Someone gave me a PC to fix several years ago that had a Foxconn motherboard. That was the first time I´d heard of them. You may be surprised at all the crap they make. You may not totally be able to avoid them.
