Taiwan Public Holidays Reduction Stalled

Taiwan's legislative general assembly has approved the recent resolution of the Health and Social Welfare and Environmental Hygiene Committee's calling for the general assembly to return to the Ministry of Labor the Executive Yuan's proposed amendment to the Enforcement Rules of the Labor Standards Act, which would see a reduction of the number of national holidays as days off from 19 to 12.

Late last month (29-Mar-2016), the Social Welfare and Environmental Hygiene Committee of Taiwan's Legislative Assembly had sent back, to the general assembly with a recommendation that it reject it, the Executive Yuan executive order reducing Taiwan's statutory holidays from 19 to 12 a year, and which was to take effect in June 2016, and was meant to compensate for a universal 40-hour work week.

The aforementioned Executive Yuan executive order, would have reduced Taiwan's statutory holidays from 19 to 12 a year, and was to take effect in June 2016, to compensate for a universal 40-hour work week, and would therefore have amended, halfway through the year, the annual calendar of official non-working public holidays in Taiwan for the calendar year 2016, as it was announced last autumn (15-Oct-2015).

As per the Act Governing the Exercise of Legislative Power, this executive order would automatically cease to be valid if the Executive Yuan fails to act within two months of last Friday's legislature's notification calling for a correction or abolition.
