ITANONG MO KAY ATO! LEGAL COUNSELING GOES TECHIE

Posted by:

Ato 1On 10th of July 2015, the Commission on Filipinos Overseas (CFO) and the Office of the Legal Aid (OLA) of the Arellano Law Foundation (ALF) signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) on the creation of the Itanong Mo Kay Ato!  This is an online legal counseling focused on  cases of human trafficking,   illegal recruitment and mail-order bride schemes, among others.

 

Said MOA was preceded by a previous agreement, signed on 29 April 2015, between CFO and OLA to provide indigent individuals/trafficked victims with legal service. Recognizing technology as the fastest and most efficient mode of communication to reach out to Filipinos, whether residing in the Philippines or abroad, CFO and OLA agreed to use it  to launch a web application for the main purpose of providing online legal counseling on human trafficking and illegal international recruitement.

 

The signing of the MOA was held at the Arellano University School of Law Campus in Pasay City.  Secretary Imelda M. Nicolas represented the Commission, while Executive Director Atty. Gabriel Dela Peña and Atty. Roberto Rafael Pulido represented the Foundation.

 

Ato 2As a member of the Inter-Agency Council Against Trafficking (IACAT) and Chair of the IACAT-Advocacy and Communications Committee (ADVOCOM), the CFO supervises the operations of the 1343 Actionline against Human Trafficking, a 24/7 national hotline primarily dedicated to campaign against human trafficking and other related acts. The provision of the online legal counseling is in line with the campaign against human trafficking and other related cases.

Joint and Several Liability of Employer and Agency

Posted by:

 

Kabayan, alam mo ba na maari mong panagutin ang iyong placement agency sa oras na hindi tumupad ang iyong foreign employer sa anumang nakasaad sa inyong pinagkasunduan at pinirmahang kontrata?

 

Ayon sa Rule VII Section 3 ng IRR, ang foreign employer/principal at ang recruitment agency ay may katumbas na pananagutan (liability) sa worker o OFW.  Ang bahaging ito ay makikita rin sa employment contract na pinipirmahan ng mga OFWs at ng kanilang foreign employer.

 

Sec.3. Joint and Several Liability.

The liability of the principal/employer and the recruitment/placement agency on any and all claims under this Rule shall be joint and several. This liability shall be incorporated in the contract for overseas employment and shall be a condition precedent for its approval. The performance bond to be filed by the recruitment/placement agency, as provided by law, shall be answerable for all money claims or damages that may be awarded to the workers.

If the recruitment/placement agency is a juridical being, the corporate officers and directors and partners, as the case may be, shall themselves be jointly and severally liable with the corporation or partnership for the aforesaid claims and damages.

Such liabilities shall continue during the entire period or duration of the employment contract and shall not be affected by any substitution, amendment or modification of the contract made locally or in a foreign country.

Samakatuwid, anumang pagkukulang ng employer o amo ay siya rin namang pananagutan ng recruitment office.  Halimbawa, kapag hindi sapat ang ibinigay na sahod o benepisyo ng employer sa Pinoy worker, maaring habulin o singilin ang kakulangan sa recruitment agency.

Ano mang katanungan o bagay hinggil sa usaping ito ay maaring idulog sa Anti-Illegal Recruitment Branch ng POEA.
