Workers at a Chinese home renovation company who failed to complete their tasks within the scheduled time have been reportedly forced to drink urine, eat cockroaches or get whipped with a belt.

According to images and videos on Chinese social media, others either had to shave their heads or drink water from a toilet bowl in the presence of other staff or had their salaries withheld by a month.

Citing workers who had quit the company located in the southwestern province of Guizhou, the state media reported that forgetful staff who did not wear leather shoes to work or failed to turn up in formal attire were fined 50 yuan ($7.20).

 Their offences were duly recorded in little white slips. However, most of the affected staff chose to stay despite the irritating punishments which allegedly started this year.

Now, three managers at the company have been jailed from five to 10 days by the local public security bureau on  charges of humiliating others
