bt 2Two senior executives at a Chinese bank have been disciplined after a new employee who refused to drink a toast with his boss was slapped and insulted at an after-work dinner.

Xiamen International Bank issued a statement on Sunday saying that the incident happened last Thursday when the worker, identified by his family name Yang, went to a Beijing restaurant with his colleagues after work.

According to the notice, Yang had refused to share a toast with the branch chief, a man named Luo, and was then slapped and insulted by another manager named Dong.

The bank said it had become aware of the incident after Yang posted an account of the incident on social media. His post struck a chord with many internet users who said it highlighted the problems of China’s hierarchical work culture and the role played by alcohol-fuelled dinners.

On Sunday, the bank’s human resources department said both managers would be given a serious warning and Dong would have six months’ worth of his bonus deducted while Luo lost three months’ worth.

The bank’s statement also offered a sincere apology to Yang.

In his social media post, Yang said he had not touched alcohol for 10 years and had no plans to change this.

“After a while when everyone was slightly drunk, one of the bosses walked up to me and … slapped me in the face and insulted me verbally,” he said. “He asked if I was stupid because I didn’t drink when the boss made a toast.”

Yang said some colleagues also criticised him and chased him to the lift when he decided to leave.

“For a new employee like me, this has ruined any good feelings I had about the financial industry,” he said.

The incident generated extensive discussions on the social media network Weibo for the issues it highlighted. Some users praised Yang for standing his ground, but others said they were worried it would ruin his career at the company.

新员工不喝酒被扇耳光!处理结果来了,涉事银行此前15人刚被罚347万!

近日,网上曝出银行员工因不喝领导敬酒被打耳光一事引发热议。涉事银行于今早回应:已对该领导给予严重警告处分,并扣罚二个季度绩效工资。

据曝光的聊天截图显示,该员工就职于厦门国际银行北京中关村支行,8月20日晚,支行在某七星级酒店聚餐。席间某位大咖领导劝酒遭到该员工婉拒,随后,另一位领导趁着酒意对着该员工边打耳光边进行辱骂,该员工道歉后提前离场。

另一位网友在留言中分析:“属实恶臭,有些领导劝的不是酒,是一种强人所难的服从性测试,一种权力的精神满足。被拒绝后感到没有威严,无能狂怒羞辱别人,让对方敬酒不吃吃罚酒,赤裸裸的心胸狭窄,同事居然是一丘之貉,这些人多了偶尔的正常人反倒是另类,这种酒局和职场文化,劣币驱逐良币真是让人窒息。”该留言获得3.3万点赞。

今早,涉事的厦门国际银行北京分行官微发文致歉,称将对该领导董某给予严重警告处分,扣罚二个季度绩效工资;对支行负责人罗某给予警告处分,扣罚一个季度绩效工资。
