My question is...what is the punishment if you do succeed in killing yourself?

Instead of forcing that on them, perhaps the company should, I don't know, RAISE EMPLOYEE MORALE!?!

That's not hard of a concept, y'know...

Maybe they need a fancy hat day to cheer them up.

Probably having to give back money they paid you because you breached the contract, which means the family doesn't get the $ that would be sitting in the bank account.

IIRC in Japan if you throw yerself in front of a train to commit suicide the train company can go after your family in court to recoup any losses. I would imagine its something equally as stupid in China.

You lose your seat on the bus.

"In the event of non-accidental injuries (including suicide, self mutilation, etc.), I agree that the company has acted properly in accordance with relevant laws and regulations, and will not sue the company, bring excessive demands, take drastic actions that would damage the company's reputation or cause trouble that would hurt normal operations."

They need some Tom Jones music. When ever I'm down, that always cheers me up.

Uh why is that stupid? YOUR Dead Body caused a massive disruption to the trains traveling in Japan. Thats lost time and money, where thousand upon thousands rely on your service. I think the contract from Foxxcon is ridiculous though.

The punishment is they bill your next of kin for your funeral. And considering that Asian traditionally value their family above themselves this is indeed a big deal.
