NEW PASSES STAY REQUIREMENT FOR MIGRANT WORKERS IN TAIWAN, STILL FOR REVISION? MUST READ!!!


There's a lot of people who felt so glad upon the new amendment in Taiwan because many of the migrant workers will be benefited from that new policy made by Taiwan government, however, there's a lot of question  coming out because upon staying here in Taiwan for three years is there a possibility wherein the migrant workers can visit their family in their homeland? is there the company here can refuse to visit their family?  how about the new applicant who wanted to go abroad are still they capable of going here in Taiwan for work?
Upon the new amendment, there's following revision so that problem can be solved in a matter that both company and employee will be benefited vice versa.

Taipei, Oct. 21 (CNA) The Ministry of Labor (MOL) said Friday it will soon revise several regulations to complement an amendment passed earlier in the day that scrapped the maximum stay requirement for migrant workers.

The Legislative Yuan passed an amendment to the Employment Service Act to remove a provision that required migrant workers who have worked in Taiwan for three years -- the longest contract allowed -- to leave the country for at least one day if they want to be re-hired.

In line with the amendment, the Regulations on the Permission and Administration of the Employment of Foreign Workers will have to be revised to set procedures for when employers want to continue to hire the same workers after three years,

Regulations governing change of employers will also need to be revised to give migrant workers clear guidance on what steps to follow when their contracts are not renewed by their original employers after three years, the ministry said.

To protect the workers' rights, the ministry said it will also revise regulations to impose a fine of up to NT$300,000 on employers who refuse to pay migrant workers their wages while they take annual leave in their home countries.

Taiwan is working to deepen relations with Southeast Asian countries and facilitate more people-to-people exchanges with those countries, Premier Lin Chuan

Lin said that the aim of the government is to cement Taiwan's relations with the countries of Southeast Asia through people-to-people exchanges and through the signing of more agreements between the respective governments.

He said relations should not just be about trade and investment, and that in fact, economic relations last longer and are less susceptible to political changes if they are based on a strong foundation and mutual understanding.

There a lot of people will be benefited upon the new amendment of the Taiwan government also there the following revision so it is easier for the both parties to answer the difficulties might rise up in during the process...
