Foxconn Warns Injured Workers To Stop Medical Support

This happens frequently as companies do not want to pay for hospital bills even in the U.S.  Foxconn has warned Apple that if a person is severely injured in their factory, the person must travel 50 miles for an assessment or get cut off payments.

This new policy may have been made towards Zhang Tingzhen who was injured on the job.  The guy was electrocuted while trying to fix a spotlight high up on the wall.  Tingzhen fell 12 feet to the ground and had to have half of his brain removed in surgery.  This had left him paralyzed and not fit for travel.  If this policy holds true then Tingzhen will be cut from future hospital payments.
