Taiwan drafted a bill urging employers to hire at least 65 years old elderly

Taipei, Taiwan - A draft bill was passed by the Legislative Committee yesterday, Oct. 30 intended that all employers found guilty of age discrimination for applicants would pay from NT$300,000 to NT$1.5 million.

The draft bill aims to boost the rate of people who want to work in the elderly and the elderly and to protect the right to reunite workers by providing them with job opportunities. The bill states that middle-aged workers are 45 to 65 years old, while older workers are over 65 years old.

Draft legislation stipulates that employers cannot cover anyone unfairly because of their age.  Discrimination refers to harmful actions taken against job applicants or employees in connection with their recruitment, job allocation, performance evaluation, hiring, wages and benefits promotion, retirement or redundancy payments.

According to the draft bill, middle aged and elderly people experiencing age descrimination can file a complaint with labor affairs authorities in their localities.  Employers are not allowed to remove or transfer them to others, when they file a complaint.

The draft bill also states that employers will pay a fine of NT$20,000 to NT$300,000 when an employee is removed or subject to any penalties such as job transfer after they file a complaint.

It also stipulates that the Ministry of Labor needs to release the names of the owners and their company undergoing mistreatment of their employees due to their age and also direct them to make changes within certain  time or face fines.

The draft bill allows employers to hire people who are at least 65 years old for permanent contract and ensures that older workers will enjoy equal employment opportunities.

It also states that the government should also provide subsidies to employers of older workers who pass on their professional erxperience to younger employees.

It also stipulates that businesses that hire workers who will reach 65 soon must also provide different forms of assistance for such workers one year before their retirement to seek employment again.
