Does anyone know what the responsibility of an employer (school) is, in case of the death of one of their employees (foreign teacher).
The Employment Services Act, Chapter 5, Article 55 states that
“The funeral service and expenses of a foreign worker who dies during the period of employment in the Republic of China shall be the responsibility of the employer.”
Does this apply to foreign teachers?
Does this include the cost of transporting the body back to the teachers home country?
Or can a school refuse to not be involved in this matter, or at the most pay for a cremation in Taiwan?
My colleagues and I are currently having to deal with this difficult issue.
We would appreciate any help from people who may have dealt with this before, or those who have an in-depth knowledge of how the law is applied in this case.
