Taiwanese Legislative Yuan has approved the 1st reading of the amendment of the Indigenous Peoples Employment Rights Protection Act. The Act will oblige government agencies, public school, public & private enterprises, organizations and school officials locating in the area which indigenous people do not reside in, to recruit indigenous people in proportioning to 1 percent of the entire number of their workforce. A failure to comply with the law will result in a fine at the basic rate equivalent to the standard wage rate of NT 17,800$ per 1 shortage of indigenous person. For government agencies, public school and enterprises locating in the area where indigenous people reside in, they are obliged to recruit indigenous people in proportioning to 35 percent of the entire number of their workforce. Indigenous People Association expects that after the law comes into force, government and private agencies will be able to create employment opportunities to indigenous people to fill in for more than 100,000 positions.
