The well-known E-Commerce platform, ‘Alibaba’ has fired a woman who has claimed that the colleague and a client had sexually assaulted her.
While on the company’s dismissal letter it mentions that she had spread falsehoods that can easily damage the reputation of the company.
Back in August, the employee went public with her allegations as she said that ‘Alibaba’ has not taken any necessary steps against the people while further, she mentions that the assaults took place during a business trip.
The colleague was then sacked, but a criminal case against him was dropped.
The client is still thought to be under police investigation.
The well-publicized case has highlighted the harassment faced by women in the workplace in China.
The employee told government-backed newspaper Dahe Daily that she was fired late last month. It published a copy of what she said was her termination letter.
The letter said she had spread false information about the assault and about the company not handling the case.
It added this “caused strong social concern and had a bad impact on the company”.
The employee was quoted as saying: “I have not made any mistakes, and certainly will not accept this result, and in the future will use legal means to protect my rights and interests.”
