MOE chief ac­cuses prof. of vi­o­lat­ing work reg­u­la­tions

The China Post - - LOCAL -

The Min­is­ter of Ed­u­ca­tion Wu Se-Hwa ( ) yes­ter­day an­nounced at the Leg­isla­tive Yuan that Peng Wen-cheng ( ), a pro­fes­sor of the Grad­u­ate In­sti­tute of Jour­nal­ism of Na­tional Tai­wan Uni­ver­sity, vi­o­lated min­istry reg­u­la­tions by host­ing a Nex­tTV ( ) talk show.

In re­sponse, Peng posted an ar­ti­cle on his Face­book page stat­ing that to have a part-time job is dif­fer­ent from hav­ing a sec­ond full-time job. He also said that cur­rent laws do not re­strict part-time em­ploy­ment, so he thinks there is no need to ex­plain any­thing about his be­hav­ior to au­thor­i­ties.

Wu stated that ac­cord­ing to cur­rent reg­u­la­tions, a part-time job should not ex­ceed 8 hours per week. Peng’s host­ing hours on the Nex­tTV show amount to 14 hours per week, which ob­vi­ously is a vi­o­la­tion of the min­istry’s reg­u­la­tions.

Wu said the Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion will have a meet­ing with Min­istry of Civil Ser­vice (

) to reg­u­late gen­eral prin­ci­ples re­gard­ing part-time jobs.
