Employers may file a 3-month extension for migrant workers if contract reach limit

The Ministry of Labor announced more measures regarding migrant workers in Taiwan which they said are all aimed at preventing the spread of COVID-19.

Employers will have the option of seeking a three-month extension of the work contracts if their migrant employees will reach the legal limit for employment in Taiwan in the next three months, he said.

The legal limit is 14 years for domestic helpers and 12 years for all other categories of migrant workers like factory workers.

The MOL is encouraging employers to renew the contracts of migrant employees already in Taiwan, instead of importing new workers.

If migrant workers are traveling from countries under a Level 3 travel warning, their employees must submit a form in advance to the labor ministry, detailing where the workers will be quarantined for the required 14 days and how they will be transported there.

Failure to provide that information to the labor ministry will result in a ban on the entry of the workers, according to MOL.
