LATEST: Hong Kong pop star Jacky Cheung has blasted the Philippines consulate for listing him as a substandard employer, insisting he is nothing but "ordinary".
Cheung - who has been nicknamed 'The Terminator' by disgruntled former staff - has been banned from hiring maids from the Philippines after sacking 21 in just three years.
But the 46-year-old claims he has been a good boss and is justified in dismissing staff if they fail to reach his standards.
He says, "I consider myself an ordinary employer. Many of my friends terminate their maids' contracts and I believe it is normal in any employment.
"An employer can fire an employee if he or she fails to perform, whilst an employee can also resign if he or she is not happy about the employer.
"Is there anything wrong if we fire a maid when we find out that she is not helpful?"
