A manager at Samsung Electronics, who caused controversy over sexual harassment at a dinner party, was fired. According to related industry source on Jan. 21, Samsung Electronics held its own disciplinary committee and fired the manager for causing problems.
"These days, a new type of 'love shot,' in which a man and a woman drink while making physical contacts under their clothes, is very popular in China," said the manager of Samsung Electronics Gwangju office at a dinner meeting in November last year.
The manager also reportedly said that he had the largest body part after loosening his belt around his neck.
In addition, the manager reportedly forced employees to play a game of alcohol that moves food from mouth to mouth, and he continued to have inappropriate physical contacts in the karaoke room. Some 20 male and female employees were reportedly present at the drinking party.
It was known that a female employee who attended the dinner reported the fact of sexual harassment to the personnel department.
After finding about the case, Samsung Electronics banned the manager from going to work and referred the case to a disciplinary committee
