Report 28 of the original act stipulated that “anyone who holds a Republic of China nationality and nationality of a different state simply cannot be hired as a civil servant.”&#13

The modification consists of a proviso that if a dual citizenship holder are unable to renounce their international nationality as it is in opposition to overseas laws, but has applied to give up their foreign nationality just before they are on board, they can be hired as a civil servant soon after the Ministry of Foreign Affairs verifies the scenario.&#13

The modification was proposed to defend the ideal to maintain community business office stipulated in Write-up 18 of the Constitution, as some countries, together with Argentina, prohibit citizens from renouncing their nationality.&#13

It also states that thanks to small business demands or specific situations, the skilled authority can formulate a plan that shares employee quotas between businesses in the similar classification and of the similar amount with the acceptance of the Assessment Yuan.&#13

Chou mentioned the latest regulation needs every agency to have a recruitment prepare that lists all of its place titles, work grades and quantity of employees. &#13

Some have recommended that businesses and schools with very similar features can share a recruitment strategy, with the complete range of staff remaining unchanged, to make the most of human assets.&#13

Other amendments involve that if a personnel on probation is observed to be incompetent and supporting proof is presented, the head of the agency could mark their performance as failed and the team on probation can’t be transferred to positions in other occupational sequence.&#13

In addition, the language relating to personnel returning from leave without pay out was adjusted from “reinstatement to obligation when the motive for suspension ceases to exist” to “return to responsibility with spend when the motive for suspension ceases to exist.”
