Taiwan to fine employers asking caregivers to work with not related in their job field

The Taiwan government recently warned employers that they may get certain punishment once they ask foreign caregivers to do works not related to caregiving.

Based on Employment Service Act, employers who will violate the law will have to face a fine between NT$30,000 (US$1,070) and NT$150,000.

Offenses include having caregivers do household chores, picking up children, taking care of other family members who are not listed in the contract, walking a dog, or assisting in the family's business operation.

Tapei's Department of Labor stressed out that even if the caregiver voluntarily did the jobs unrelated to his or her work,  it will still be a violation to the employers because that is still considered illegal.

It added that employers who will continually assigned their migrant laborers of works excluded to their contract may even lose their recruitment license.
