Taipei, Oct. 13 (CNA) The chairman of a leading educational publisher apologized on Tuesday for the workplace bullying of a whistleblowing employee, just one day before Taiwan's National Federation of Teachers Unions (NFTU) was set to launch a boycott of the company.

In a written statement, Kang Hsuan Educational Publishing Group Chairman Lee Wan-chi (李萬吉) apologized for "setting a bad example to the public" through home quarantine violations last month which preceded the incident.

He also apologized for "unsound company management" that led to "psychological trauma" and the resignation of an employee suspected of having reported his quarantine violations.

"I have reflected deeply on the criticism and comments received from various sectors of society. I believe the company made multiple errors in its handling of this issue, and am willing to humbly accept the blame for that," he said.    [FULL  STORY]
