Huawei’s sales director in Poland, who previously served in the Chinese diplomatic corps, has been arrested by the Polish authorities on spying allegations.After serving as attaché at the Chinese general consulate in Gdansk, Wang joined Huawei’s Poland office in 2011, first as its PR director then as its sales director responsible for selling to the Polish public sector.Wang was detained on 8 January, on allegations of spying, as was first reported by the Polish public broadcaster TVP.According to TVP, an Orange employee arrested on the same allegations, identified as Piotr D, had worked at the country’s Internal Security Agency (ISA, or “Agencja Bezpieczeństwa Wewnętrznego (ABW)” in Polish), which carried out the arrests.The offices of Huawei and Orange were searched respectively following the arrests, though a spokesperson for ISA told Reuters that the allegations against Wang were related to individual actions, not directly linked to Huawei.This is also the line Huawei adopted when it promptly severed the employment relationship with Wang, citing that “in accordance with the terms and conditions of Huawei’s labour contract, we have made this decision because the incident has brought Huawei into disrepute.”

Update, 01/14/2019, 04:16 AM ET: Huawei has fired the employee recently arrested in Poland charged with spying for the Chinese government.According to CNN, Huawei said in a statement Saturday it had fired the employee, which China’s Polish embassy named as Wang Weijing, for bringing the firm into “disrepute.”Wang was arrested alongside a Polish intelligence official last week for the alleged spying offences.Further, Huawei said in a statement that Wang’s “alleged actions have no relation to the company.”It’s a quick move from the Chinese smartphone maker, given that the news made headlines only on Friday and Wang has not been proven guilty of anything.Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou was arrested in Canada in December at the behest of the U.S. government for apparently misleading multinational banks regarding transactions connected to Iran (something which could have affected U.S. sanctions).
Poland could limit use of Huawei products after worker arrested – ReutersWhat happened: After a Huawei employee and a former Polish security official were arrested on spying charges in Poland last week, Huawei may face new restrictions in the European country.A senior government official said on Sunday that Poland might consider banning public bodies from using the company’s products.It could also put further limits on enterprises considered to be security threats.On Saturday, Huawei said it had fired the arrested employee, and that his “alleged actions have no relation to the company.”Why it’s important: Although the specific allegations against the former Huawei employee have yet to emerge, the case certainly doesn’t help the company’s current international public relations crisis.
Susan Walsh, who worked for Doner for 10 years, first in 2008 as a copywriter and later as a creative director, has filed a lawsuit against the agency for age discrimination.The suit, filed on Dec. 17 in the U.S. District Court for Eastern Michigan, alleges that Walsh was abruptly and unjustly fired from her job at Doner Detroit last May, three days before her 60th birthday.Her departure was among a round of layoffs that targeted employees who did not possess the “anticipated skills, knowledge and abilities needed by employees in the future,” the lawsuit alleges Doner told Walsh upon her termination.Doner has complied with all applicable laws and firmly believes that her lawsuit is without merit.Doner contested this claim, and the EEOC dismissed the charge in September 2018.Walsh’s attorney, Shereef Akeel of Troy, Mich., firm Akeel & Valentine, disputed that the original complaint filed with the EEOC was dismissed because Walsh’s claims against Doner were unfounded.

Polish authorities have arrested two individuals and accused them of conducting espionage on behalf of the Chinese government, the Polish TV channel TVP has reported (via BBC).One is a Chinese man who is the head of Huawei’s sales in the country, according to The New York Times, while the other is a Polish national and employee of the telecoms provider Orange Polska.The network has recently worked with Huawei to build its next-generation 5G network.The arrests come amid fears that Huawei equipment could be used to spy on behalf of the Chinese government when used to build a country’s communications infrastructure.The US has reportedly considered explicitly banning the use of the company’s equipment from such networks, and it has also pressured its allies to do the same.Several allies have already done so.

Times are tough in Europe for carmakers, as evidenced by Thursday's Reuters report that both Ford and Jaguar Land Rover are laying off large swaths of employees.Jaguar Land Rover will be releasing a little over 10 percent of its workforce while Ford is keeping its numbers private.These massive layoffs stem from many contributing factors including the US' trade difficulties with China, China's slowing car market, Brexit, reduced demands for diesel vehicles and stricter emissions requirements.According to Reuters' report, Jaguar lost £354 million in the span between April and September of 2018, and the looming threat of a no-deal Brexit could cause losses in 2019 to be even worse if operating costs aren't reined in.Ford Europe currently employs 53,000 people, and while we don't have a specific number that Ford will be laying off, reports put it in the thousands.Ford is also contemplating the closure of several of its European manufacturing facilities in an attempt to move that division's finances from red to black.
