• The total separation rate includes people separating from employment voluntarily.
• Calculation:
[Number of people separating from employment in Taiwan in the year ÷ (number of employees at the beginning of the year in Taiwan + number of employees at the end of the year in Taiwan) ÷ 2] ÷ 12 x 100%.
[Number of people separating from employment in Mainland China in the year ÷ (number of employees at the beginning of the year in Mainland China + number of employees at the end of the year in Mainland China) ÷ 2] ÷ 12 x 100%.

Employment of Disabled Workers

Adhering to the concept of giving back to society, Innolux is subscribed to the philosophy of “teaching a man to fish”. For this reason, employing disabled people is the best way to support them. It is hoped that the successful implementation of this policy at Innolux can serve as a successful example for other businesses to make the same effort, so that businesses in Taiwan can work together to help disabled people find employment.
Achievements in 2018  • The total of 879 disabled people were hired in the Greater China region.
 • 345 disabled people are hired in Taiwan site. The hiting rate was 1.14%, higher than the statutory requirement of 1%.
 • 534 disabled people were employed at Mainland China sites. The employment rates at the Ningbo Site (1.53%), the Foshan Site (1.97%), and the Nanjing Site (2.95%) were all higher than the statutory requirement of 1.5%. However, the employment rate at the Shanghai Site was only 0.81%, failing to achieve the statutory requirement.


Retention Efforts

Parental Leave
Innolux makes an active effort to develop a friendly workplace and a caring corporate culture to encourage employees to improve performance at work whilst also helping them to achieve a healthy work-life balance. The Company understands the difficulty of raising a family and thoroughly supports parental leave. In accordance with the Act of Gender Equality in Employment and the Regulations for Implementing Unpaid Parental Leave for Raising Children, employees who have been with the Company for six months may apply for an unpaid parental leave to care for their children.
• Before an unpaid leave of absence expires, the Company would take the initiative to contact employees to discuss their willingness to resume work, as well as make arrangements to reduce any problem in resuming their position after they return to work.
• The Company also makes shift adjustments for such employees and signs contracts with specific kindergartens so their children are well taken care of whilst they are at work; this includes taking the children to school and picking them up afterwards.
We believe enhancing the capacity of employees to perform well both at work and at home can help stabilize our workforce as well as improve employees’ sense of belonging within the Company. In the end, it benefits both the employer and employees.

Explanation: The number of employees eligible to take parental leave is calculated according to the number of employees who already applied for maternity leave or paternity leave between 2016 and 2018 and were therefore qualified to apply for parental leave.

Leave Given to Promote Work-life Balance
At Taiwan sites, annual leave is given more generously than that stipulated in the Labor Standards Act. All employees are entitled to annual leave starting at employment. Employees can also apply for different forms of paid leave to be given in accordance with the law; including marriage leave, prenatal examination leave, maternity leave, paternity leave, bereavement leave, military leave, occupational injury leave, and annual leave.
At Mainland Chinese sites, paid leave is given according to local laws and regulations, including annual leave, marriage leave, bereavement leave, maternity leave, and paternity leave, etc. Employees can apply for leave according to their personal needs and requirements.

Insurance Plans
Employees at Taiwan sites enjoy various types of social insurance, including Labor Insurance, National Health Insurance, and labor pensions. In addition, the Company also takes out group insurance for them, including life insurance, accident insurance, medical insurance, and cancer insurance. Employees can also choose to take out private insurance plans for themselves and their dependents at a subsidized rate. Innolux has worked out across-the-board insurance plans for employees’ peace of mind.
Mainland Chinese sites also take out social insurance for their employees; including pension schemes, medical insurance, unemployment insurance, occupational injury insurance, and maternity insurance. In addition to these five major types of insurance, each site also takes out commercial group insurance for its employees to ensure employees have better protection if they become ill or need medical care after an accident.
