The Taiwan branch of McDonald’s Corp. decided to end its new sixty second  drive-thru program ahead of schedule in the wake of complaints from its employees and a pending investigation into its labor practices this Sunday.

According to Taipei’s Department of Labor, McDonald’s could face a fine of up to NT$150,000 if it is found to have violated labor practices with its recently halted program, which involved serving customers in sixty seconds or less.

In addition to its sixty second time limit, the program also stipulated that customers be reimbursed with a coupon if a meal is not finished in under a minute. Thus, causing disputes and anxiety among the employees.
