Words from the Director:

As the capital of the country, Taipei City embraces the values of Diversity, equality, and inclusion. Disabled employment and foreign labor services are exactly two of the most important tasks to feature the values.

The introduction of foreign labors to Taiwan has started in 1990s and, at the same time, the People with Disabilities Welfare Act was amended in 1997, gradually heading to human rights-oriented legislation, the People with Disabilities Rights Protection Act.

In decades, challenges from external environment have never stopped. The fluctuation of the domestic job market, the rapid increase of aged population, and domestication of the CRPD impact the disabled employment and foreign labor policies in different levels.

With tougher workplace competition for disabled employment, it is the crucial moment to re-attach importance to diverse employment models and to rethink and adjust the existing models of vocational rehabilitation service. The problem of aging population of disabled employment will, then, carry on conversations and connections of services among labor, society and health administrations.

The foreign labor in Taipei City serves as the key supporting labor force in family care. In the development of Long-Term Care 2.0, a new model of labor force utilization must be repositioned. In terms of inspection and management, giving our feedback to the central competent authority to become the basis of policy adjustment and establishing a transparent procedure to enhance the public credibility are the next missions of the Foreign and Disabled Labor Office.

Our office combines services for two groups of people. To the public, we are devoted to providing professional services. For the public service management, we emphasize the cooperation and communication with the private sector, hoping to enhance our service efficiency. In policies, with the spirits of citizen participation of Taipei City government, we expect to take in more public opinions.

We believe that the diverse society should be established on the faith of equality and inclusion. We will realize the values, work with labors from all fields and countries, and continue to build Taipei as a cross-ethnic city of happiness.


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 coordinate, inspect, and manage foreign migrant workers' affairs, as well as promoting, protecting and taking disciplinary action against illegal employment rights of 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.
