    Ministry of Labor says attendance bonuses, food allowances count toward minimum wage (2014/05/12)

    Scrutiny of a pay stub allegedly from an employee at a Hon Hai subsidiary has led lawmakers to question what counts toward minimum wage. Today the Ministry of Labor explained that base salary can be under minimum wage as long as allowances and bonuses push final pay past the bottom threshold.

    Terry Gou (May 10)
    Hon Hai Chairman
    Today our operators all receive a salary of over NT$22,000.

    This comment from Hon Hai Chairman Terry Gou and the posting of a pay stub by an employee of Hon Hai subsidiary Innolux has sparked renewed discussion of company pay. Today a lawmaker asked a Ministry of Labor official to explain what counts toward minimum wage.

    Dep’t Head, Ministry of Labor
    Food allowances and attendance bonuses are all calculated in.

    The Innolux pay stub shows that when allowances and bonuses are included, pay exceeds the minimum wage of NT$19,047. But it doesn’t reach the NT$22,000 that Terry Gou claimed his employees receive. A lawmaker asked the labor minister how his agency would handle a worker who received below minimum wage when attendance bonuses were deducted.

    Pan Shih-wei
    Labor Minister
    If a violation occurs, a labor investigation could take place. Local governments could also investigate.

    Innolux issued a press release to state that engineers with a college degree receive at least NT$34,000 monthly. Technicians with a high school degree that work the daytime shift are paid at least NT$23,900. Innolux believes that the recent representations of low pay directed its way are misguided.
