Eiger Successful in Discrimination Case Against Car Rental Company

Eiger successfully handled a foreign resident discrimination case against iRent, the Taiwan car rental company. As many foreign residents in Taiwan know, several online services (car rentals, shopping/online auctions, hotels, various government services) are off limits to them simply because their Alien Resident Certificate numbers are not formatted the same as a Taiwan ID number. Hundreds of thousands of foreign residents in Taiwan are denied basic services that Taiwan nationals take for granted. Hopefully this case is the beginning of the end for blatant private sector and government discrimination against tax-paying foreigners who call Taiwan home.
