Sustainability

Equal Opportunities & Diversity

 

To implement the protection of human rights and "General Equality in Employment Act", Chunghwa Telecom has incorporated strict recruitment systems, measures and activities. In addition, Chunghwa Telecom has stipulated various anti-sexual harassment measures to implement sexual harassment prevention and mechanism. To handle employees victimized by misconduct, Chunghwa Telecom has established “Complaint Committee” that consist of 5 members, with 3 female members (more than half) and effective mechanism. Owing to our effective control, no incident of discrimination was reported in 2016.

With regards to the diversity of manpower, we have been hiring persons with disability above the quota specified in Article 38 of People with Disabilities Rights Protection Act. In 2016, the number of persons with disability hired by the Company was more than 3.66 times the statutory quota (statutory quota: 217; actual hire: 795). To ensure employees’ freedom of association, 99.86% of employees are covered by an independent union. Chunghwa Telecom is the only telecommunications carrier in Taiwan to have established, and signed a collective bargaining agreement, with a union. This initiative not only complies with local laws and international human rights conventions, but also demonstrates our commitment to the protection of employee rights and interests. As for the 41 indigenous employees onboard in 2016, we have fully respected their cultures and therefore no violation of work rights or human rights was reported during the year.
