The Social Welfare and Environmental Hygiene Committee of Taiwan's Legislative Assembly has sent back the recent Executive Yuan executive order, reducing Taiwan's statutory holidays from 19 to 12, to the general assembly with a recommendation that it reject it.

The aforementioned Executive Yuan executive order, reducing Taiwan's statutory holidays from 19 to 12 a year, was to take effect in June 2016, was meant 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 (2015-10-15).
