Employees of a home improvement business in south-western China have been forced to drink urine, eat cockroaches and have been smacked with belts as punishment for failing to meet sales targets, according to Chinese local media.

The video was viewed more than 500,000 times, as per Zunyi Yaowen via South China Morning Post last November 5, with screenshots of the video continuing to be spread after the original post was taken down.

The video, filmed in southwestern China's Guizhou Province on October 30, shows a worker standing in the middle of what appears to be an office meeting room being whipped by one of the managers. As he was whipped with a belt by another man, other people stood around him and watched.

The workers were also reportedly ordered to eat cockroaches by the management, who believed they had let the team down.

The video explicitly shows staff holding their noses as they down large plastic cups full to the brim of yellow liquid, later confirmed to be urine.

It had not paid its employees for the last two months.

Two of the company managers have been jailed for 10 days, while a third manager will spend five days in jail, Zunyi police said in a statement on Weibo. The person also alleged that the company had threatened to reduce their severance pay if they quit.
