Should employees take naps at work?

Editor's note: Four employees of Haier Group, China's largest home appliances manufacturer, were fired for taking a nap during their lunch break, which sparked heated discussions online. Haier later issued a notice on its platform saying the four employees did not take a nap during break time, but slept in public reception areas during working hours. This, the company claimed, violated Haier's employee code of conduct and their contracts should be terminated. Should employees be fired for taking a nap at work? Readers share their opinions.

No one should be napping on company time. If discovered, such behavior is subject to disciplinary action. In some severe cases, repeated misconduct may lead to termination of employment (in some Canadian government establishments). I agree with the manager, no one should be sleeping on their job.
