TAIPEI, Taiwan — The Ministry of Education pulled a U-turn Monday, retracting a previously announced policy that would have included all nontenured professors under the umbrella of the Labor Standards Act.

Education Minister Pan Wen-chung (潘文忠) said at the Legislature’s Education and Culture Committee that the inclusion should be “reconsidered.”

Amending the regulations governing the employment of nontenured professors would perhaps be a more pragmatic approach that would create fewer problems, Pan said.
