【Violation explanations are as follows】 :

【Article 30, Paragraphs 5 and 6 of the Labor Standards Act】: The company was fined by the Department of Labor for not keeping an employee attendance record. The company had explained to the Department of Labor that the company's office personnel adheres to an honor system based on mutual respect. The company consistently complies with laws and regulations. However, the company operates in various cities across Taiwan, and its employees move around quite frequently. The company has also established overseas offices around the world, therefore to facilitate business activities on a global scale, the company has given consent that managers and employees may work flexible hours as needed. For the above reasons, the company is unable to comply with regulatory requirements at the present, but continues to try and find a feasible solution that complies with the regulatory requirements.

【Regulation on Work-Related Injury Insurance(Guangdong) and Regulation on Work-Related Injury Insurance(Tianjin)】:

Most violations involved occupational injuries. While the company provided relevant safety measures and training, employees failed to observe the rules at the plants and onsite supervisors failed to supervise and manage the workers. The failure led to injuries to employees. The company has reiterated the importance of wearing protective gear to its employees and the rules to ensure that onsite supervisors check whether the workers wear protective gear. The company has also increased the frequency of physical examination for the employees, and arranged for employees and their direct supervisors to work in shifts in order to reduce the risk of injury.
