On April 12, the official microblog Jingdong Spokesperson of Jingdong Group issued a public announcement, saying that the recent news about the layoffs of deceased employees after they participated in the Jingdong Loan Purchasing Scheme was untrue. According to Jingdong Group, the employee has not participated in the so-called Jingdong Loan Purchase Plan and has not been laid off. The company will immediately take legal action to safeguard the dignity of the company and its employees in connection with rumors about the deceased in the media.
Recently, anonymous news on the social platform vein said that an employee of Jingdong Global Purchasing Department committed suicide because of too much pressure. Later, after the media said that the employee participated in the Jingdong Loan Purchasing Scheme on Weibo, he was laid off, and was asked to pay off the loan at one time by Jingdong, which eventually led to his suicide. Earlier today, Jingdong responded that the specific case should be verified by the public security department.
