I found this snippet of info: Rights and Obligations of Foreign Workers
on this government sponsored website:Information for Foreigners
I believe there are several groups who oversee the rights of foreign laborers in Taiwan, mainly domestic and construction workers, but I've never seen, nor heard of, an organisation which aims to protect and oversee the rights of the thousands of English teachers on this island.
Is there one? If not, I wonder why not.
Over the years I've heard scads of stories related to unfair treatment towards these foreign workers. I'm guessing since so many are transient, that this type of organisation has never been established.
Amazing, isn't it?
I know there's a group ETA-ROC, English Teachers Assoc, but they're concerned with the TESOL side rather than rights, although there's no official TESOL chapter here either.
When you think of it, it IS rather abyssmal like DDE says.
