Employers may face a max fine of NT$300,000 for charging quarantine of migrant workers

Taiwan's Ministry of Labor (MOL) said that employers of migrant workers face a maximum fine of NT$300,000 if they fail to cover the cost of the 14-day compulsory quarantine of their migrant workers.

The 14-day compulsory quarantine is mandatory for those entering Taiwan mandated by thr Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC).

MOL's Workforce Development Agency (WDA) said that it is the responsibility of employers to take care of the migrant workers they hire. This includes making arrangements for them to undergo two weeks of quarantine at a quarantine hotel or a location they arrange.

WDA said employers who ask migrant workers to pay for the compulsory quarantine face a fine of NT$60,000 to NT$ 300,000 and will have their hiring permit revoked.

If an employment agency asks migrant workers to pay for the compulsory quarantine, it will be fined and have its operations suspended for up to a year, in accordance with the Employment Service Act.

The WDA called on migrant workers who encounter such situations to call the MOL, local government or dial 1955 to report to the authorities.
