The case of Foxconn engineer Zhang Tingzhen, whose left brain was damaged in a factory accident last year, was heard at Longhua street labor arbitration tribunal in Shenzhen on Tuesday.

Zhang's plight came to light after it was reported that Taiwan firm Foxconn sent text messages to his family, saying it would stop paying for his treatment and other expenses if they did not remove him from a hospital in Shenzhen city and make arrangements for him to undergo a disability assessment 70 km away in Huizhou.

The focus of the dispute is whether Zhang's labor contract was signed with the Foxconn Shenzhen subsidiary Hongfujin Precision Industry or the Huizhou subsidiary Jizhun Precision Industry (Huizhou).
