Man Marries 4 Times and Divorces 3 Times Just To Qualify For Extended Paid Leave

Published

Many of us have made up excuses to get off work. But one man in Taiwan took it to the extreme and frankly, quite ingenious. He got extended paid leave from work by getting married four times and divorced three times in just 37 days.

According to a law in Taiwan, a person has the right to 8 days of paid work leave when they get married. This clerk got married last year on April 6 which means he got exactly that. However, on the last day of his 8-day leave, the man divorced his wife, only to marry her again the next day and ask for another paid leave. He went on to marry the same woman four times, and divorce her three times in 37 days, for a total of 32 days of paid leave.

However, things didn’t go as smoothly. The bank he worked at figuring out his scheme. So his employer refused his leave application for another eight days. But that didn’t sit too well with him.

The bank clerk resort to file a complaint against his employer at the Taipei City Labour Bureau, accusing the bank of breaking the law by not abiding by Article 2 of the ‘Labour Leave Rules’ – arguing that he deserved that 32 days paid leave.

The Labour Bureau launched an investigation into the matter ruled that the bank had indeed violated the Labor Law. The bureau fined the bank NT$20,000 (RM2,904) in October of last year. But the bank also launched an appeal which claimed that it is the employee’s ‘malicious abuse of marriage leave’.

However, on April 10, the Beishi Labour Bureau upheld the previous ruling.

The case went viral on social media, sparking a heated debate about the loophole in labor legislation. Some accused the clerk of being unreasonable. Some actually confirmed that the law does allow anyone to pull off the same stunt as detailed above, but until last year, no one had actually done it.

KOTA BHARU, July 30 — The COVID-19 pandemic did not stop a group of youths in Kampung Sireh here from pursuing their interest in making wau, a traditional kite widely found in Kelantan.

A check by Bernama at Kampung Sireh Flats found that  about seven to 10 youths were producing ‘wau puyuh’ (quail kite) or Wau Kelantan ordered by their customers.

According the group’s head, Muhd Nasru Aiman Mohd Zu, 31, they would continue producing wau puyuh even during the pandemic due to steady orders, and they did not want the traditional art to die out.

Even though it is seen as an old-fashioned craft compared to the modern gadgets, it still has its own fans, he told reporters when met here today.

“Alhamdulillah (Praise be to God), there are still young people in this area who are keen to learn how to make these traditional kites.

“Previously, we only made kites for competitions, but now the demand for giant-sized kites as decorative pieces is increasing,” he said, adding that they learned the kite-making skills from his 61-year-old father, Mohd Zu Man.

Muhd Nasru Aiman said despite the economic slowdown, they continued to receive four to five orders a month for a kite and each piece of giant-sized kite could be sold at the price of RM350.

He said the giant-sized kite needs more than five adult men to fly it.
