The amount of workers in New Taipei City is ranked first of all the municipalities nationwide. Starting in November of 2011, our government has established a total of six employment service branch offices, one by one, in Yonghe, Shulin, Tucheng, Xizhi, Wugu, and Tamsui, areas with large numbers of workers, convenient transportation, and are metropolitans area or with high concentration of industries. The establishment of these branch offices is aimed to provide employment services for workers as well as for labor law consultation.
On January 1st 2005, under the support of the county government and the hard work of the Labor Affairs Bureau, “Taipei County Employment Service Center” was formed in accordance with “Regulations on the Establishment of Public Employment Service Institutions”, which is the first county to offer self-service employment service related business nationally, aside from municipalities such as city government of Taipei and Kaohsiung. At the same time, Tucheng and Wugu Employment Service Counters were upgraded to stations, combining with the pre-existing Yonghe, Xizhi, Tamsui, Shulin Employment Service Counters and mobile offices, thereby forming a comprehensive employment service network. In response to Taipei County being promoted to a municipality on October 1st of 2007 as well as understanding that employment services will become the core business of labor administration, our government has renamed the service center to “Taipei County Government Employment Service Center” from the original name of Taipei County Employment Service Center. Additionally, vocational training section and employment service section has therefore upgraded to vocational training unit and employment service unit; the latter organizational restructuring and business functions were amended on February 3rd of 2010, in which the original vocational training function was ceased, focusing solely on employment matching and developing employment promotion related measures, thereby offering its citizens the most convenient and the most comprehensive employment service. On December 25th of 2010, Taipei County was officially upgraded to New Taipei City, and therefore the center was then renamed to be “New Taipei City Government Employment Service Center.”
To expand the offering of employment service information and consultation for the citizens of New Taipei City, on May 17th and July 1st of 2008, Xinzhuang Employment Service Counter and Luzhou Employment Service Counter were established respectively, officially opened its doors in collaboration with Xinzhuang District Office. On September 21st of 2009, Xinzhuang Fuying Employment Service Counter was officially established, with the City Hall Employment Service Counter formed on November 2nd of the same year. On May 1st of 2012, the original Xinzhuang Fuying Employment Service Counter was renamed to Xinzhuang Employment Service Station after the expansion of its employment services. And the Xinzhuang Employment Service Counter was renamed to Xinzhuang District Office Employment Service Counter. (On January 1st of 2019, Xinzhuang Employment Service Counter was integrated into Xinzhuang Employment Service Station to continue its provision of services). On June 29th of 2012, we’ve established employment service counters at both Linkuo and Sanxia District Offices. On July 1st of 2015, Sanchong Employment Service Station was formed after accepting the entrustment by the Ministry of Labor (MOL) to handle the business of Sanchong Employment Center, thereby having jurisdiction over Bali and Taishan Employment Service Counters. Continuing to be entrusted by the MOL, both the business of Xindian and Banqiao Employment Service Centers were handed over, allowing the responsible authority to be uniformed (in employment services) within the borders of New Taipei City. On June 27th, 2018, Tamsui Employment Service Station began operation, providing its citizens a comprehensive employment service network.
To offer our citizens a more in-depth and more expansive service, on September 2nd of 2016 the organization went through restructuring, in which “New Taipei City Government Employment Service Center” was restructured to “New Taipei City Government Employment Service Office, with jurisdiction over a total of 6 stations and 17 counters, continuing to provide pre-existing services which offers benefits, as well as various employment promotion measures.
