The Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) is working hard to curb illegal recruitment in the country. The government agency is closely monitoring if POEA recruitment agencies follow the fair policies of overseas deployment. For this reason, the POEA had cancelled the licenses of 21 recruitment agencies and suspended 12 others from January to May 2012. That includes five agencies that were charged motu propio by the office, for numerous recruitment violations.
According to the report of POEA Chief, Hans Leo J. Cacdac to DOLE Secretary Rosalinda Dimapilis-Baldoz, Cacdac initiated the filing of cases against:
Philglobal Manpower Development Corporation,CSM International Recruitment Services, Inc.,Gyron Crew, Inc.,Crosswind International Manpower Services; and Acclaimed One Manpower and Recruitment Services.
He said, “These agencies were found to have violated various provisions of the POEA rules and regulations and Republic Act No. 10022 and were meted with appropriate sanctions provided under the law.”
