Panel Discussion on Enforcement of Labor Inspection

AmCham Taipei’s Human Resources Committee conducted a Chinese-language panel discussion on “The Enforcement of Labor Inspection” at The Howard Plaza Hotel Taipei on August 3. Aimed at enhancing understanding of amendments to the Labor Standards Act and the enforcement of labor inspections, the program featured inspection office chiefs from the Taipei City, New Taipei City, and Taoyuan City government who addressed their offices’ practices in four key areas: 1) the responsibility of labor inspectors, 2) the inspection process, 3) overtime reporting policy, and 4) attendance recordkeeping.

AmCham Taipei’s Human Resources Committee has raised a number of issues to the Ministry of Labor (the labor authority) that have emerged as a result of amendments to the Labor Standards Law (LSL) passed in December 2016. The Committee presented five issues in the 2017 Taiwan White Paper as key areas of concern for its members, who hope to see greater flexibility and predictability in employment laws in Taiwan.
