Council of Labor Affairs (CLA) officials said yesterday that they were considering including family helpers under the Labor Standards Act (勞動基準法) to protect their interests. The officials made the remarks after this week's release of the US' annual Trafficking in Persons Report by the US State Department, which downgraded Taiwan's labor situation to the "Tier 2 watch list" as a result of the excessive amount of work many foreign caregivers are given. The officials said the council still had to work out many details, such as fixing what would be considered reasonable working conditions for foreign caregivers. The council plans to conduct several surveys of foreign caregivers and consult with experts before making its recommendations.
