So I would have worked 32.5 total hours but I am only getting paid for 26 because my normal work woke isn't 42 hours? I'm not sure I understand
This is the exact text of 僱用部分時間工作勞工應行注意事項 6.3.4: (http://laws.mol.gov.tw/Chi/FLAW/FLAWDAT0202.asp
按勞工平均每週工作時數除以 42 小時(依每 2 週法定正常工作時間推算平均每週工作時數)乘以應給予請假日數乘以 8 小時。
There's no official translation that I know of. Here's mine:
Marriage, bereavement, personal, and sick leave are handled in accordance with the Regulations of Leave-Taking of Workers [the document referred to by LSA Art. 43], and the number of hours per day of the leave [they actually mean the total hours] shall be calculated with reference to the following method:
Take the worker's average number of weekly working hours, divide by 42 hours (based on the biweekly legally prescribed normal work time calculation of average working hours [this means use a two week period to calculate the weekly average]), multiply it by the number of days for which leave should be granted, and multiply it by 8 hours.
If you had a weekly average of 42 hours or a biweekly average of 84 -- the pre-5-day-work-week full-time standard -- you would get the standard 8 hours per day, for the relevant number of days, which is 8 in this case.
42 / 42 x 8 x 8 = 64 hours
As a buxiban teacher you're supposed to have a maximum of 32 hours per week among all your buxibans, so if you're at the maximum you should get this:
32 / 42 x 8 x 8 = 48.76 hours
(Of course, if they scheduled additional hours in the two weeks before you went on leave, they still need to pay on the basis of those hours.)
If you were at 26h/week, you should get this:26 / 42 x 8 x 8 = 39.62 hours
You can ask the labor department to confirm this, but they sometimes get confused about these things. If you find anything they say doubtful, ask the Ministry of Labor (http://english.mol.gov.tw/homeinfo/6462/19948/
) and then get a non-co-worker friend to translate the response.
