Exactly what Sandman & Feiren said, hire a local person & you won’t have a problem. We had a Phillipina coming into our house once per week for a few weeks only, she was caught on another of her moonlighting jobs, gave all her “employers” names to the FAP and every single family was fine NT$150000,-. We tried to argue, beg and fight, sent a petition and all, but to no avail, we had to pay in the end. She was also illegal as she had run away from her initial factory job (which of course we didn’t know at the time), but the FAP told us that that actually doesn’t make a difference, illegally employed is illegally employed as work permits, as was said correctly earlier, are usually issued for one employer only. There are exceptions, but then all jobs are listed on the permit. The girls themselves need jobs, which of course I sympathize with, so they will tell you all sorts of stuff about what they are allowed to do and what not … they’re not! We calculated that we paid appr. NT$12500,-/hour for her services, on top of what we gave her of course!! Xpet.
