Tencent denies spinoff of Meituan

According to Reuters, Tencent plans to sell all or most of its stake in Meituan.

Currently, Tencent holds a 17% stake in Meituan. The stakes are worth $24.3 billion (about 165 billion yuan), based on Meituan's market value on Monday.

In this regard, according to 36kr reports, Tencent officials denied the authenticity of the news, saying that Tencent currently has no plans to sell shares of Meituan.

In December, Tencent cut its 86 percent stake in in the form of dividends, worth $16.4 billion. A month later, Tencent sold another 2.6% stake in Singapore-based gaming and e-commerce company SEA for $3 billion. The move is seen as Tencent cashing in on its investment while adjusting its business strategy.

Apple pays 200 million compensation for delaying employees from get off work due to bag search

According to Business Insider, Apple recently agreed to pay California employees $30.5 million (about 207 million yuan) as compensation for employees who were delayed from get off work.

The class-action lawsuit, filed in 2013, covered 14,683 California employees and was awarded an average of $1,328 (about 9,000 yuan) per employee.

It is reported that previously, Apple's 52 stores in California, the United States will search the handbags carried by employees, including during off-duty hours and meal breaks.

The plaintiffs argued that Apple should pay employees overtime for inspections during breaks, otherwise it would violate California labor laws. Some employees wait as much as 1.5 hours a week for security checks, equivalent to about $1,500 in overtime pay.

The New York Post also reported in 2015 that two Apple employees had emailed Cook a complaint, accusing Apple of embarrassing and degrading rules about checking employees' carry-on luggage as a safety precaution.

After being sued, Apple no longer conducts bag searches on employees.
