Business and Human Right

Here we support the Universal Declarations of Human Rights and that we are aware of the UN Framework and Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (the Ruggie Framwork) in order to protect human rights, and uphold the spirit of the Act for Gender Equality accounted for more than half the entire body.


To protect against sexual harassment, we have duly enacted the “Guidelines of the Chunghwa Telecom Co., Ltd. in Sexual Harassment Preventive Measures and Grievance” to prevent sexual harassment and help victims of sexual harassment proceed with grievance or subsequent legal procedures. To take charge of a sexual harassment incident, we have duly set up the “Grievance, Investigation & Appraisal Committee” which has five Committee members, including three female Committee members, with female Committee members accounting for over one-half the members.In 2015, no discriminatory incidents of any sorts were reported.

In July 2006, to assist employees with balancing their careers and families, we took the lead in implementing unpaid childcare leave. Female employees are paid childcare leave benefits equal to half their insured salaries during the leave period which may be for up to 2 years. After employees have received the maximum number of monthly employment insurance payments from the government, female employees can then begin receiving maternity leave benefits equal to half their insured salaries. Family leave, paternity leave, menstrual leave, nursing rooms, etc, are also provided. In 2015, a total of 185 persons applied for childcare leave, while 155 persons applied for unpaid childcare leave, and 104 persons applied for childcare benefits.
