Words from the Director:

The Labor reconstruction and Placement Office is set up to service the following two categories of human resources: the first is international migrant workers and the second is people with disabilities who have the potential and willingness to work.

In the 1990s, because of the rising needs of labor for the development of the domestic economy and industrial production, Taiwan opened the door to international migrant workers. Thereafter, home care workers and domestic helpers were also introduced into the nation, catering for the needs of an aging society. To date, the number of international migrant workers in Taiwan has reached 440,000. The field of human resource management and utilization of international migrant workers involves an expanded scope of issues, including human rights, citizen diplomacy, economic development, labor relations and social security.

In the area of employment services and vocational rehabilitation for people with disabilities, under the limited yet efficient organization of the public office, Taipei City seeks concerted efforts from private social resources in order to better meet the special needs of the people with disabilities and provide more comprehensive services. Every person has different needs and the disabled people are no exception. Among the general needs, employment helps people with disabilities to learn and grow as well as gain self-confidence. Employment provides an opportunity towards the pursuit of self-realization. However, every case is different; therefore, in practice, providing suitable employment is of the highest priority. The key tasks of the Office will include vocational assessment, sheltered employment, supported employment, job re-design and employment promotion for disabled people in private businesses as well as transition services. To achieve the maximum effect for all of the above services, private resources will have to play a key role in the process.

Taipei City Foreign and Disabled Labor Office was founded on January 1st, 2013 under the Taipei City Department of Labor. The Disabled Worker Division and the Foreign Labor Division were originally two of the divisions in the Department of Labor. To better protect and manage the rights and interests of the workers with disabilities and foreign labors in Taipei City, the Department of Labor gathered the resources currently available and created this office from the two divisions originally within the department. With the creation of this office, we are now able to elevate our ability to plan, inspect, and manage any affairs regarding foreign labors and workers with disabilities.

This office is staffed with the following subordinate units: Section of Service Management for the Disabled, Section of Occupational Reconstruction Services for the Disabled, Foreign Worker Inspection Section , Foreign Worker Counseling Section , Administrative Service Office, Accounting Office, and Personnel Office.
