    The company warned that surprise home visits will be conducted by the management anytime from March 17 to April 15, at random. Any employee who is not at home during the visit may be terminated for cause, unless he/she has a compelling reason for being out.

    Understanding that the workers might need to go out to buy food or go for medical check-up, the company allows this as long as the worker informs his/her immediate superior.
