Taipei, Jan. 22 (CNA) Far Eastern Air Transport Corp. (FAT) was fined another NT$1.5 million (US$49,200) by labor authorities Wednesday for failing to making outstanding salary payments to its 1,000 employees.

It was the second time a fine was imposed on the cash-strapped airline this month for not being able to meet its commitments to its workers, according to Chen Kun-hung (陳昆鴻), an official at Taipei City's Department of Labor.

On Jan. 6, the carrier was fined NT$1.5 million after it failed to pay the December salaries of its 1,000 employees, which would have amounted to NT$50 million, Chen said.

Following its default on its payments again on Jan. 21, a second fine of NT$1.5 million was imposed on the carrier for breach of responsibility, he said.    [FULL  STORY]
