Applications and reports relating to labor insurance administration should not be delivered through convenience stores.

In accordance with the "Postal Act", letters, reports and statements should be delivered by postal offices exclusively. Private vendors are not allowed to operate the business. The various documents relating to the labor insurance program, therefore, should not be delivered through convenience stores or private delivery services. It is undeniable that people nowadays are becoming more and more reliant on convenience stores, where new and innovative services are launched all the time, including payments, door-to-door delivery services and printing facilities. Convenient stores offer speedy and friendly services and life experience to the citizens. A lot of people, however, may not be aware that not all documents can be delivered through convenient stores.
Further, if an insured unit chooses to deliver the labor-insurance-related documents through convenience stores, it not only may constitute a violation of the "Postal Act", but also may adversely impact the effectiveness of the insurance coverage and impair the rights and interests of the workers. The Bureau of labor Insurance (BLI) explained that, the labor insurance program adopts a "Reporting and Declaration" system, which requires all insured units to, in accordance with relevant regulations, report and declare the enrollment of its employees on the day of employment. The insurance coverage shall become effective on 12:00 am of the date when the relevant documents are mailed (based on the date of postmark stamped by the sending post office) or delivered to the BLI. In accordance with the letter instruction of the Ministry of Labor (formerly the Council of Labor Affairs, Executive Yuan) dated December 11, 2012, if an insured unit sends the enrollment applications through a private vendor entrusted by the convenient store, the insurance coverage shall become effective on the date when the documents have been delivered to the BLI. There would be a time lag of two to three days, therefore, between this date and the date when the insured unit sent the documents to the convenient store for delivery, causing a potential delay of the enrollment. To avoid unnecessary disputes, the BLI reminds the insured units to be cautious of the delivery methods when sending labor insurance documents.
