TIWA (Taiwan International Workers’ Association see: www.tiwa.org.tw) is a non-profit, non-government association devoted to promoting cooperation between foreign and local workers, improving the working conditions and social environment for foreign workers in Taiwan, and improving foreign workers’ rights and benefits.
Until now TIWA has been focusing mainly on helping blue collar migrant workers (such as foreign laborers or domestic help) but would now like to expand services to include white collar foreign workers (such as language teachers or any foreign office staff whose employment contracts place them under Taiwanese labor laws).
Our goal is to provide you with a central and official resource for all of the latest laws and regulations that would affect your work in Taiwan and to provide you with a public forum so that you can express your concerns, ask questions and give suggestions for legal change. In the near future we are planning to hold regular face-to-face meetings and workshops to help you clarify your rights as a foreign white collar worker in Taiwan.
If you are a foreigner either currently working in Taiwan as a white collar worker or planning to live and work in Taiwan as a white collar worker we would like you to take a moment to reply to this post. Please tell us which labor law topics you would like to see addressed or questions you have about labor law in Taiwan.
