Just checking in with the legal eagles who read this blog:
After her suicide attempt, Yu received a one-off \”humanitarian payment\” of ¥180,000 (£18,000) to help her go home. According to her father: \”It was as if they were buying and selling a thing.\” Last year, Tim Cook received wages of $4m – it was a big drop on the package he took in 2011.
Just a thought. But if an employee of a UK company, in the UK, attempted suicide at work and paralysed herself in the process, would the company then be making an ex gratia payment of 15 years\’ wages?
