Japanese Salariman Given No Work in Empty Room, Instead of Layoff?

Somewhere I read (in English) about a Japanese salariman whose company, rather than laying him off, assigned him to work in an empty room doing nothing all day, hoping that he would quit. Can anyone find a reference to this case? Bonus points if there's a Japanese name for this practice. Arigato!
