 According to Paragraph 3, Article 3 of the Labor Standards Act, the Act shall apply to all forms of employee-employer relationships. However, this principle shall not apply, if the application of the Act would genuinely cause undue hardship to the business entities involved due to the factors relating to the types of management, the administration system and the characteristic of work involved and if it belongs to the business (or industries) or worker designated and publicly announced by the Central Competent Authority. Whether or not a business entity is applicable to the Labor Standards Act shall be in accordance with Article 3 of the Labor Standards Act and Article 3 of its Enforcement Rules, which is dependent on the business entity's main economic activity as categorized according to the Standards Business Classification of the R.O.C.
