One Confirmed COVID-19 Case at Bureau of Labor Insurance 勞保局1話務員確診 匡列採檢69人皆陰性

One confirmed COVID-19 case has been found under the Bureau of Labor Insurance workplace. Fortunately, all 69 employees who have come into contact with the confirmed case were tested negative. 


An outsourced call center representative working for the Bureau of Labor Insurance is confirmed with COVID-19 on the 28th. The representative felt sick earlier and went to the hospital to get tested. Out of concern for other colleagues, the representative took a day off from work. In the meantime, all 69 employees that work along with the representative got tested as well and fortunately, all results came out negative.

Hsu Chen-yuan, Chief Secretary, Bureau of Labor Insurance: “There are 69 employees in total that work at the call center. The Department of Health has ordered all to quarantine at home for the time being.”

Hsu Ming-chun, Minister, Ministry of Labor: “This certain call center representative only talks on the phone and has not been in contact with the public. There is no need for alarm.”

In Taoyuan, 48 migrant workers from Thailand who work at the Datan Power Plant fell ill to COVID-19. Labor Minister Hsu Ming-chun visited these workers at the government quarantine facility on the 28th. Many of these workers are asymptomatic. Hsu reassured them that they will still get paid during quarantine.

Hsu Ming-chun, Minister, Ministry of Labor: “I reassured them of their labor rights and that they will continue to get paid during this period of time, so please abide by the quarantine measures.”

The Ministry of Labor (MOL) said they will require employers of migrant workers and labor brokers to strictly enforce COVID-19 regulations and penalties at the dormitories. The MOL shall inspect large migrant worker dormitories from time to time. If living conditions are below standards, dormitories will be required to make proper changes within three months to prevent forming further COVID-19 clusters. 

 

 

 

位於北市羅斯福路的勞保局,照常開門服務民眾,不過28日傳出有一位委外廠商、電話服務中心人員確診,此人員自行到醫院採檢,但週一有警覺性並沒有來上班,同一個區域工作的人員共69人,當天傍晚全數採檢,結果上午出爐皆為陰性。

勞保局主秘徐振源指出:「電話中心其餘一共有69位,69位現在是28位被台北市衛生局匡列的對象,在居家隔離。」

勞動部長許銘春表示:「我們這位確診的電話服務中心的同仁,他沒有接觸到民眾,電話服務中心就是在接電話,所以沒接觸到民眾,所以請大家放心。」

另外,針對桃園大潭電廠48位泰國籍移工確診,被送往集中檢疫所,28日勞動部長許銘春也前往關懷,她表示很多移工是無症狀,有特別廣播告訴他們,薪水照發請安心配合隔離。

勞動部長許銘春指出:「透過廣播告訴他們相關勞動權益都會保障,薪水也都會照付,請他們配合相關的防疫作為。」

勞動部表示,接下來會加強雇主及仲介,落實移工宿舍管理及裁罰,持續加強地方政府重點訪查大型移工宿舍,若發現缺失將要求3個月內限期改善,來管控移工群聚風險。
