Employers Urged to Obtain Permit for Hiring Foreign Workers

Foreign and Disabled Labor Office (FDLO) urged businesses not to employ foreign workers to perform without permit. The agency made the statement in light of an increasing number of complaints filed against such illegal doings in the city’s nightclubs and sales promotion events.

FDLO noted that a task force, involving the city’s Police Department and National Immigration Agency, has been formed to investigate the reported cases and found that foreign workers have been engaged in illegal music mixing or dancing activities in pubs during its inspection visits. According to Employment Services Act, employing foreign workers without permit or after the expiration of permit will incur a fine of not less than NT$150,000 or more than NT$750,000. Anyone who violates the rules repeatedly within five years shall be sentenced to a jail term not to exceed three years, and/or penalized for an amount of anywhere up to NT$ 1.2 million dollars. Employers who wish to hire foreign workers should apply for foreigner’s employment license from Ministry of Labor. For inquiries, please dial FDLO at 02-25502151 or Workforce Development Agency at 02-89906000.
