    Foreign caregivers to receive extension on residency limit (2011/01/03)

    The legislature is considering extending the time limit that foreign caregivers can live and work in Taiwan. Legislators want to extend the limit from nine years to 12 after the president of the Taiwan Red Cross Society C.V. Chen, whose son requires 24-hour-a-day care, made representation to the Legislature Monday.

    In May this year, the foreign caregiver for Chen’s severely handicapped son will be forced to leave Taiwan after reaching the limit of 9 years in the country. But, seeing his son’s almost complete dependence on the caregiver, Chen visited the Legislature Monday in the hope that the caregiver’s residency can be extended to 12 years.

    Legislative Speaker
    If this amendment is not passed, Chen might cry. So, we need to be understanding.

    While Chen was trying to help his son, Interior Minister Jiang Yi-huah, whose son suffers from mild autism, expressed sympathy.

    Jiang Yi-huah
    Interior Minister
    The situation with my child is much less serious than that of Mr. Chen’s son. My son can take care of his basic living needs. We have trained him to take care of himself and clean himself. The situation can’t be compared with Mr. Chen’s difficulties but I can identify with him.

    The Council of Labor Affairs is not opposed (to the amendment) because this type of proposal does not affect the overall number of foreign laborers and also does not affect the rights of Taiwanese laborers.

    KMT Legislator Cheng Li-wun, who proposed the amendment, said extending the time for the current caregiver is a more stable solution than hiring a new one and will not raise the total number of foreign caregivers in the country. A high level of consensus has been achieved between governing and opposition legislators making Cheng optimistic ahead of negotiations that will take place on Tuesday.

    紅十字總會長陳長文最近勤跑立法院,家中有極重度殘障兒子的他,積極奔走,希望修法延長,外籍看護居留時間,因為照顧兒子的外籍看護工作期滿9年,依法必須離台,對此勞委會初步承諾,應該可以延長到12年,立法院長王金平則形容,修法如果過不了,陳長文可能會掉淚

    今年5月,家中照顧極重度殘障兒子的外籍看護工作就期滿9年上限,依法即將離台,但眼看兒子的狀況幾乎一刻也離不開外籍看護,讓紅十字總會長陳長文積極奔走立法院,希望外籍看護的居留時間,能修法放寬到12年。

    [[立法院長 王金平]]
    “如果這個法令不通過,他(陳長文)可能就要掉淚了,所以我們要有同理心”

    陳長文為愛子奔波,讓兒子罹患輕度自閉症的內政部長江宜樺,心有戚戚焉。

    [[內政部長 江宜樺]]
    “我自己家庭孩子的情況比陳長文先生要輕微許多,所以我的小孩在基本的生活照顧,我們都訓練讓他能自我照顧,自理,跟陳長文的困境不能相提並論,但我
    能感同身受”

    [[勞委會職訓局副局長 廖為仁]]
    “勞委會表示不反對(修法),因為這樣的提案,不影響到外勞人數也不影響本國勞工的權益

    提案修法的國民黨立委鄭麗文表示,延長服務時間比重新聘請其他外籍看護要有更高的穩定性,不會增加外勞總額,不會影響本國勞工的權益,藍綠都有高度共識的情況下,對於明天的朝野協商結果,她十分樂觀。
