The MoL published a ruling on May 14, 2015, stating that where shift employees attend legally-mandated meetings(such as board of directors meetings, labor-management conferences and meetings of employee welfare committees, etc.) during periods outside of agreed work hours, the time spent for such meetings shall not be deemed working hours as provided in the LSA, because The attendance of such meetings is not directed by the employer, and the employees are not directed or supervised by employers during such meetings (unless otherwise provided in relevant regulations).
