Employers who refuse to hire someone because of their age or birthplace will be breaking the law, according to a draft amendment of the Employment Services Law (就業服務法) approved by the Executive Yuan yesterday. Age and birthplace were added to the list of prohibitions such as gender and race in the draft amendment that was proposed by the Council of Labor Affairs. Once the amendment has been approved by the Legislative Yuan, employers must not disqualify a job seeker on the grounds of age or birthplace. The new law is expected to help middle-aged and elderly people find new jobs and alleviate social problems arising from early retirement in some industries.
