Yes. But even if they need work permit, I think private non-buxiban company can hire foreigners from non English countries to help them in English.

At regular schools, they need teacher licence in addition to work right/permit.


#24

As long as they can justify why they need that foreigner for… but I haven’t seen any category that fits as “help with English” among the options that the government gives you.


#25

Is there no room for in-company translator or something like that? Its different from English teacher, though.


#26

To be a translator you need to be native in one of your language pair and have two years related experience.


#31

Cant it be an option that Formosa has an anti-discrimination policy more active than taiwanese laws say?


#32

I like that. @tando you have my vote for becoming the new @yyy.


#33

I’m not sure. Could we be doing something legally actionable by rejecting an advertisement for such reasons? I think it would be dependent on the severity of the circumstances, and that’s certainly open for discussion here.


#35

I think yes, without changing any forum policies. The mods can remove/reject any posts by any reasons.


#36

True, but I’m not totally sure how that would apply to an advertisement. We’d have to take a look at that. Anyway, do we want to here? That might be more to the point


#37

You must know on legal issue to operate a forum a lot more than me, but ill search on this (policy) issue for a while.


#38

He doesn’t know much. Trust me on this. I’m going to sue him and you too for your bad English today.


#39

It would just be something we’d have to look into. Now, I’m mostly trying to figure out if such provisions are legal or not. I’m trying to put together a query to the Labor ministry, but I can’t find the regulation that says foreign cram school language teachers have to have a passport from a country with the right official language. Taiwan government FAQ’s seem to change their web addressing every 6 months, which doesn’t exactly help

Sexist!


#41

It’s written “sexiest”, and thanks baby, you can ride my motorcycle whenever you want.


#42

its here. Article 42 of Qualifications and Criteria Standards for foreigners undertaking the jobs specified under Article 46.1.1 to 46.1.6 of the Employment Service Act.

Never want.


#44

Boooooooh. Ok. I like to fart on my bike, and to take passengers is always annoying.


#45

Thanks!


#46

Tachaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan:

The legislature yesterday passed an amendment stipulating that employers can not discriminate against jobseekers on the basis of birthplace, sexual orientation or age.


#47

Yep, we know about that law. I’m just not sure how its provisions apply to foreign workers. If I were, we wouldn’t need this thread
