Singaporean fired from work for YouTube videos–report

Is this a stern warning for other workers in Singapore? This tells us that playing at work is frowned upon by this society. That’s funny because when I was in a government agency yesterday, I saw people playing Table Tennis in the hallway, as the elevator opened. And it’s not even a Saturday. Let’s just say this government agency will become important again next year.

Excerpt from INQ7.net:

SINGAPORE–A temporary employee at a Singapore company has been fired and another is being investigated for posting videos of themselves “horsing around” in the office on the popular video-sharing YouTube web site, local media reported Saturday.

The two were initially reprimanded but StarHub on Tuesday fired Terence Tan, 25, the Straits Times newspaper reported. The company is considering disciplinary action against the other employee, who was not named.

Company officials were not available for comment on Saturday.
