Department of Labor of Taipei City -Calls on Employers Respecting Employees’ Religious Freedom

According to the Report of International Religious Freedom in 2011 released by US, a Catholic private school in Taipei entangled in religious employment discrimination that 2 teachers were discharged resulting from their religion. The school was fined NT$600,000 for violating the Employment Service Laws paragraph 1 of Article 5. The Department of Labor of Taipei City Government reminds employers respect employees’ religious freedom and avoid any kind of employment discriminations.


The Commissioner of Department of Labor of Taipei City Government, Mr. Chen, Yeh-shin appoints that it was the first employment discrimination case relating religious discrimination.
Despite the school argued that the discharge of the two teachers resulting in their ineligibility, the government investigation approved it was religious discrimination. One of proof was the e-mail that the teachers received from the school board stated “…that we cannot renew your contract for next school year due your religion…” The school then appealed to the Council of Labor Affairs (CLA). Consequently, CLA affirmed the original sentence made by the Taipei City Government that the school committed employment discrimination in religion.

Based on the respect for religious freedoms, Department of Labor of Taipei City Government reminds enterprises, organizations or institutions not discriminate employees with different religion by forcing them to participate in different religious activities or disregarding their religious practices. To promote the concept of fairness and equality in workplace, employers are welcome to dial direct (1999 # 7023) or connect to the official website () for relating information.
