This is true and is just what they argued, that the time card was “to help me” by protecting me from any miscalculation of pay. However, the contract stated that payment depended on time card data, undercutting this argument.
If it’s a buxiban then it’s neither a company nor a business (the word firm or 行號 should have a broader meaning than business or 商業, but according to the MOL it doesn’t), ergo the 5 employee rule doesn’t apply, so the only thing to make it compulsory is the existing registration. So with existing registration, even if the number of employees currently registered is zero, even if it’s always been zero, it’s still compulsory, but if the registration never occurred in the first place, it’s not.
On the other hand, if the business is a de facto buxiban but registered as a company (or as a business within the meaning of the Business Registration Act) instead, then it’s shot itself in the knee, because the five employee rule applies after all.
I do have a link. From April 20 to June 23 at 5:30 in the evening, a total of 625 kids from college through kindergarten have been infected. Surely there are more recent numbers but I have not looked for them today.
How will the schools prevent transmission between kids? How will the kids be prevented from bringing the virus back home to parents and grandparents? It’s obvious we are never going to be rid of the virus. I guess we’ll just have to take our lumps and deal with what happens.
The transmission between kids…Regular testing in the schools.
All school staff should be vaccinated. Try to separate kids from elderly, but all elderly should be vaccinated by then. If they don’t vaccinate that’s their risk to carry. Try to separate elderly from the kids (not always possible).
Transmission to younger and middle aged adults might be the problem but it’s all a balance in the end.
Countries in Europe kept the schools open at high transmission rates (compared to Taiwan ) since maybe Jan this year.
However cram schools I have a particular concern because they mix kids from different schools.and classes.
