TAK­ING ON ABU­SIVE BOSSES

Pretoria News - - METRO -

SOUTH Korean work­ers fed up with bul­ly­ing are be­ing em­bold­ened by a new tougher labour law to se­cretly record al­leged abuse or ha­rass­ment by their bosses, boost­ing sales of hi-tech au­dio and video de­vices.

Gad­gets dis­guised as leather belts, glasses, pens and USB sticks are all prov­ing pop­u­lar with em­ploy­ees.

Sev­eral in­ci­dents have made in­ter­na­tional head­lines, most no­to­ri­ously the 2014 Korean Air “nut rage” case in which the air­line’s vice-pres­i­dent, Heather Cho, as­saulted a crew mem­ber over the way she was served macadamia nuts in first class.

Jang Sung-Churl, chief ex­ec­u­tive of elec­tron­ics firm Auto Jungbo, said covert record­ing de­vices “have been sell­ing like hot­cakes”. | Reuters
