Again from Quartz Obsession, four curious labor laws from around the globe. I like the one about the waistline checks the best. 🙂
4 curious labor laws around the world
- Japanese employers are required to measure the waistlines of workers ages 40-74 in an effort to control obesity; if they exceed certain guidelines, the workers are given dieting advice.
- In Madagascar, women aren’t allowed to work at night “except in family establishments.”
- In India, companies with more than 100 people need government permission to fire someone.
- In the United States, you can be legally fired for almost anything, like if your boss doesn’t care for your political bumper stickers.
