Response to 2023 Labor Issue


Due to some attendance records in 2023 showing consecutive shifts caused by employee leave, therefore MacroHI failed to comply with the regulations and was fined NTD 120,000 dollars in 2023. This issue arose from differing interpretations of "company holidays versus personal leave" between the company and employees, leading to non-compliance.

For example, in principle, employers should not require employees to work more than six consecutive days.According to Article 36 of the Labor Standards Act: "A worker shall have two regular days off every seven days. One day is a regular leave and the other one is a rest day." If employees consider holidays (including special leave) as regular leaves or rest days, it could lead to inadvertent violations of the Labor Standards Act.

In response to the Ministry of Labor's guidance, MacroHI has reviewed relevant concerns and implemented the following measures:

  1. Strengthening Employee Training and Communication: Regularly promote attendance regulations during monthly meetings to ensure all employees understand and comply.

  2. Implementing a New HR System: Establish leave and salary verification mechanisms to meet regulatory requirements, reducing risks and enhancing management oversight.

  3. Enforcing Work Hour Monitoring: Assign personnel to regularly review work hour records for accuracy and completeness.

  4. Appointing a Compliance Officer: Stay updated on regulatory changes, integrate them into company policies, and regularly report compliance status to management.

Through these measures, MacroHI is committed to improving compliance in attendance management, greatly reducing operational risksand, and ensuring employee rights.
