TAIPEI, Taiwan — Change could be in the cards for the “one fixed day off, one flexible rest day”
workweek, which took effect in January.
The Chinese-language tabloid Apple Daily reported Friday that the Ministry of Labor was evaluating the matter of amending the workweek law.
The ministry aims to write up a bill by next month and to deliver it to the Executive Yuan for consideration by the end of August, according to Apple Daily, which did not name its source.
Labor Ministry Secretary-General Chen Ming-jen (陳明仁) denied the report, saying there were no plans at present for legal amendments.
