Give birth on time or else!

The lighter side of the news brings forth a gem of humour.

Workers at a finance firm in Henan province were said to have been told they must apply for a "place on the birth-planning schedule" - and only if they had been employed for over a year.

The firm ... has recently hired a lot of young women and is said to have been concerned that they would all go on maternity leave at the same time.

If they are worried about female employees taking time off to have babies, why do they have such a big gender imbalance in their hiring policy? Hmm. Makes one wonder.

The plan distributed by the firm suggested that only married female workers who had been with the company for more than a year would be allowed to conceive - and only within a specific period.

"The employee must strictly stick to the birth plan once it is approved," the statement said.

Employees who became pregnant in violation of the plan, and in a way that affected their work, risked a fine of 1,000 yuan (£102; $161), the statement said. They may also have to forfeit year-end bonuses and promotion or awards.
The people running that company have lived in a very isolated and insulated world. They believe a woman can plan a pregnancy according to a rigid schedule! And they are running a business? :o :lol:
