Taiwan has fined a school for firing two Mormon teachers over their faith, according to a report on news.com.au.

The Catholic Dominican International School, located in Taipei, has been fined $20,000 for sacking the two American women, according to the capital's labour bureau.

The school informed the teachers earlier this year that their contracts would not be renewed due to their religion, prompting them to complain to labour authorities, said the bureau.
