TAIPEI (TVBS News) — The government is comprehensively considering aid for child care, Taiwan's Minister of Labor, Hsu Ming-chun, said on Wednesday (March 13). The minister revealed that this approach would extend to regular revisions.

According to Hsu, the Ministry of Civil Service, acting as the employer of civil servants, plans to add childcare leave for the benefit of its employees. The minister noted that all employees, including laborers, fall under government consideration for childcare benefits.

 

A recent draft amendment to the leave rules for public servants by the Ministry of Civil Service proposes seven days of paid "child care leave" each year for civil servants who care for a child under six years of age.

Civil servants can apply for an extra three days off for each additional child under six. This allows civil servants with childcare needs to accumulate at least 14 days of paid leave for family and child care. However, general workers don't enjoy the same seven-day paid family care leave as civil servants.

Hsu emphasized that the government is implementing several measures to improve the childcare environment. The Ministry of Health and Welfare increased childcare allowances. The Ministry of Education bolstered early childhood education resources. Additionally, the Ministry of Labor provides greater flexibility in parental leave and increases parental leave subsidies.
