Stomach-churning footage has emerged which appears to show workers being forced to drink water from a toilet as punishment for missing their target.
It was filmed at a photography company in Guang'an, Sichuan Province on Friday.
A number of workers were recorded scooping water from the toilet bowl with a cup before drinking it.
According to local reports, the woman featured in the video at the top of this page later suffered diarrhoea.
The clip has left many in China appalled after going viral in the country.
