Banks Order Vacationing Workers to Work from Home|富邦金&國泰金 曾赴11景點員工須居家辦公


Huge crowds had hit tourist hotspots around Taiwan over the long weekend without any social distancing, causing concern that it may have facilitated the spread of COVID-19. On April. 6, companies including Fubon Financial Holding and Cathay Financial Holding are ordering workers who have visited any of the 11 destinations that Central Epidemic Command Center had issued warnings for, to work from home for two weeks.


Employees pass through a thermal scanner and then get their temperature checked on the first day back from the long weekend. Cathay Financial Holding checked whether employees went on vacation during the long weekend and has banned staff that visited the 11 tourism sites on the government's warning list from entering the office on the 6th. The employees must work from home for the next two weeks.

They sent out a departmental questionnaire via Line yesterday. And then, during the pandemic period -- so, I am considering cancelling all my travel plans in the second half of the year.

The company was worried about infection coming back from the long weekend so they informed us that we have to wear masks at all times in the office.

The 11 sites include Alishan in Chiayi, Dongdamen Night Market in Hualien, Guanziling and Hutoupi in Tainan, Cishan Old Street in Kaohsiung, and Kenting. An estimated 1,200 of Cathay's 40,000 employees in the banking, securities, and insurance sectors will be working from home the next two weeks. Fubon Financial Holding has issued a similar work-from-home directive, and one public bank will follow suit.

Based on my understanding, I think there might be one.

Hon Hai has similarly ordered employees that visited any of the 11 sites to work from home for a week starting the 6th, and to not return to the office until they are sure they are healthy.



員工進入公司大門,要先通過熱像儀器、測量體溫,清明連假結束後的第一個上班日,國泰金控不敢掉以輕心,已在5號週日調查員工有沒有出遊,並且規定曾前往11個被警示的旅遊熱區,6號週一就不能再進公司、必須實施為期兩週的居家辦公。

國泰金控員工 李小姐表示:「昨天就非常迅速地,我們第一個時間,其實是透過LINE的方式,去做各個部門的調查。然後疫情爆發期間,所以原本自己下半年,有計畫的旅遊,目前應該就是會先考慮取消。」

國泰金控員工 張先生表示:「連假回來,怕有防疫的破口,所以公司也算滿緊急,跟同事說,必須要全程戴口罩上、下班。」

國泰金控指出,全台4萬多人,約有1,200人必須居家辦公,但因為分散在銀行、證券、產險、人壽等子公司,所以對於人力調配影響不大。回顧疫情指揮中心警示的11個景點,包含嘉義阿里山、花蓮東大門夜市、台南關子嶺、虎頭埤、高雄旗山老街、墾丁等等,而除了國泰金控,最早要求員工到訪過11熱點旅遊,就必須居家辦公的是富邦金控。至於公股銀行,財政部表示,也有一家跟進。

財政部長 蘇建榮表示:「我的了解,應該好像有一家吧。」

就怕連假國旅熱潮,形成防疫破口,科技大廠目前已知鴻海集團也向員工發出通知,有去過11處景點,6號週一就要在家上班、自主健康管理7天,確認身體健康沒有異狀,才能進公司。
