Shineful Hot Pot Chain Shuts Down Without Notice|火鍋超市始祖 "祥富水產"無預警停業


The Shineful seafood supermarket and hot pot chain closed its headquarters and all 11 stores across Taiwan. Employees said they haven't received their year-end bonus and salary for March, not to mention any severance. Employees working in the headquarters said they received messages from the company, admitting the company is out of capital and apologized.


There are 11 Shineful seafood supermarket and hot pot restaurants around Taiwan. On the 16th, all 11 locations closed without notice. Many employees were not notified.

In January, we were asked if any of us wanted to take unpaid leave.

We didn't get our year-end bonus in January. They kept saying we would get it the next month, and then the next month. We still haven't gotten it.

Employees say they haven't received their year-end bonus or salary for the month of March, and they were recently asked if they were willing to take unpaid leave. Suppliers say they have not been able to reach anyone at the chain's corporate headquarters in Kaohsiung.

(How long have they been acting weird?) They haven't. We didn't know anything was wrong until yesterday.

We didn't know anything was up until we saw what their employees were posting online.

Some corporate headquarter employees received an apology text from an executive, who said the company is out of capital and must use its remaining cash to repay loans. The Kaohsiung City Labor Affairs Bureau is investigating.

(The workers') fundamental labor rights must be protected. Owed wages and severance must be paid in full.

The bureau says the company will be fined if it doesn't pay its 300-plus workers owed wages and severance.



火鍋食材全放在冰箱裡,要吃什麼顧客自己拿取,祥富水產開創火鍋超市的消費方式,從2018年起,全台陸續展店11家,但16日晚上有員工傳出內部訊息,祥富水產無預警停業,而且未通知所有員工。

祥富水產員工表示:「甚至在一月的時候,公司就透過主管,口頭提問的方式,建議我們有沒有人員,想要休無薪假。」

祥富水產員工表示:「在一月的時候,我們就年終領不到,然後他就一個月延一個月,到現在我們也拿不到年終。」

員工表示,公司去年的年終獎金和三月薪水還沒發,也曾問過員工是否願意休無薪假,但沒料到驟然停業。位在高雄的總公司八阪餐飲,供應商聯絡不到人,也上門了解狀況。

祥富水產供應商表示:「(多久發現他們怪怪的?) 沒有,是昨天跳票才知道的。」

祥富水產供應商表示:「也是從網路看到,他員工貼出來的消息,我們才來看的。」

總公司關門,員工從內部拿到高階主管的道歉訊息,指出公司已經燒盡資金,儘剩現金必須拿去還融資公司。勞工局表示,正派員入場了解。

高雄市勞工局主祕 皮忠謀表示:「最基本的勞動權益要保障到,比方說應該給付的工資,如果說是他就此歇業的話,針對所謂的資遣費,也應該要全部拿來做給付。」

八阪有300多名員工,勞工局表示,業者欠薪加上大量解僱,將逐一開罰,希望業者盡快出面。
