New Power Party Legislator Hung Tzu-yung (洪慈庸) yesterday asked the Ministry of Labor whether it was capable of detecting seemingly obvious illegal working conditions for nurses at New Taipei City’s Far Eastern Memorial Hospital.
A netizen claiming to be a nurse at the hospital recently said that nurses at the hospital are forced to comply with illegal conditions.
At the Legislative Yuan yesterday morning, Hung said after learning about the conditions regarding “negative duty hours” and “repaying the hospital for taking days off” that nurses face, she asked the ministry on June 20 to conduct an ad hoc labor inspection of the hospital.
Hung showed a letter that she said proved that complaints about the labor conditions are true. [FULL STORY]
