I would like to ask what your experience is with part-time/side-jobs along with a full-time one. After several months of having a full-time job (as per contract) and the ARC/work permit, it turns out that my language teaching job does not have enough hours per month for me to earn enough. The job is great and I want to keep it, but a side-employment might be useful here. My boss is a nice lady but I do not feel like discussing the topic with her openly before having some more infos, as she, of course, has an interest that I’m available most of the time. I know you are legally entitled to have a part-time job as long as your main employer agrees. Then you would have to register with the immigration/labor department.
Unfortunately, my search has not given me a good answer, so I’ll try this way. So I would like to ask for your experience with or advice on this, especially regarding:
- Get a side job first, then inform employer, then register with authorities?
- I heard from others that part-time employers might be hesitating to register the job because it’s too much effort. Personally, I like to have things formally correct, but then again I am not too familiar with how things work here in Taiwan.
- As for online jobs (with the company being in another country), would I have to register those in any way?
Thanks for sharing your ideas. Any help is welcome.
Best wishes, Ferris
