Omega X CEO details how he abused his employees in this tell-all video that was recorded earlier this year. In it, he explains how he forced his employees to work extreme hours, while providing no compensation whatsoever. If they complained or did not meet their unrealistic daily goals, they were instantly fired and asked to leave the building immediately.
The video was recently released online and has gone viral within the last several hours, as more individuals become aware of the mistreatment suffered by these unfortunate workers at Omega X headquarters.
What led to the CEO’s abuse?
The abuse began when the company’s growth led to the need for a new, larger office. The investors insisted that Omega X move into a more expensive space. Omega never told his employees about the cost-cutting measures that needed to be taken to make this happen and when they found out about it, they were understandably upset. The CEO was also feeling pressure from his investor at the time, which contributed to his decision not to tell them in order to avoid conflict.
They started yelling at him and throwing things around their desks because they felt betrayed by their boss who had always been such a supportive figure in their lives before then. He realized that he had acted impulsively because of stress rather than logic and apologized profusely to the team for putting them in such an awkward position due to pressures from above.
However, while they accepted his apology, they all refused to work with him after that point – so he decided to resign as CEO. No one wants a predator as their leader, said one employee in response to the situation.
How did the CEO abuse his employees?
CEO abuse can come in many forms, but one of the most common is micromanagement. This form of abuse occurs when a business leader has an obsessive fixation on controlling and interfering with every aspect of their company. Micromanagers often use these tactics to avoid their own responsibilities, or because they are incapable of trusting others to do the job for them.
Micromanagement is a form of abuse that can be extremely damaging to the mental health of an employee. It can lead to high levels of stress and anxiety, which will cause people to feel inadequate and unproductive. Workers who have been treated like this for long periods of time may find it difficult to adjust after leaving such an environment. They may struggle with insecurity, and there’s a chance that their relationships at work will suffer too. They’ll also likely experience increased levels of depression, as well as feelings of hopelessness, anger, guilt, and resentment.
What were the consequences of the CEO’s abuse?
After several years of abusing his employees, Omega X CEO was caught by a whistleblower who leaked the video of him verbally abusing an employee. His company lost $10 billion in stocks and they had to shut down all operations. He was publicly shamed and has been unable to find work since then. He is also going through a divorce with his wife who couldn’t take being married to such an abusive man anymore.
In addition, he could go to jail for up to two years if convicted on misdemeanor charges of felony counts of assault. The only thing keeping him out of prison is that the video of his abuse wasn’t recorded in California so it’s not a crime there. And because of that loophole, the abuser can continue to run his company without any consequences whatsoever. And just like any other typical abuser, the abuser will do anything possible to get what he wants even if it means ruining other people’s lives in the process.
What can be done to prevent similar abuse in the future?
The first step is acknowledging that a problem exists, said Omega. We can’t fix it if we don’t know about it. I am committed to making sure this never happens again. I need to take ownership of what happened and not just hide behind my company name. That includes apologizing to the affected employees, those who stood up for them, our partners who do business with us, as well as the general public.

Abuse isn’t always overt – often times it takes the form of micro-aggressions, such as discounting an idea because it was given by a woman, avoiding eye contact because someone is black or telling jokes related to race or gender. Regardless of how something looks on the surface, each instance should be taken seriously and dealt with swiftly.
