Severely disgruntled employees murder CEO

Perhaps one reason things like this don’t happen here is that angry employees can resort to the court system.

Corporate India is in shock after a mob of workers bludgeoned to death the chief executive who sacked them from a factory in a suburb of Delhi.

Lalit Kishore Choudhary, 47, the head of the Indian operations of Graziano Transmissioni, a manufacturer of car parts that has its headquarters in Italy, died of severe head wounds on Monday after being attacked by scores of laid-off employees, police said. The incident, in Greater Noida, followed a long-running dispute between the factory’s management and workers demanding better pay and permanent contracts.

The article also explains that angry mobs are derailing major corporate projects in India.  I wonder if unions are in India’s future?

I am not sure what you mean when you say that "Perhaps one reason things like this don’t happen here is that angry employees can resort to the court system." A group of laid off employees killed the CEO. What do our courts have to do with this?
