This blog is not a recruitment agency! It only features news and info for overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) and their families. All inquiries regarding job opportunities featured here should be directed to the concerned agency. Please refrain from posting personal information in the comments section.
One of the absurd sides of being a helper abroad is that OFWs leave home and their family, their children to take care of other family and to look after other parent’s children.
This short film entitled “Homecoming” talks about the other side of motherhood. Watch and get moved.
“Homecoming” won multiple awards: Best Student Short at the China Independent Film Festival, Gold Panda award for Students and Special Jury Award in Drama at the Sichuan TV Festival, Best Film in Fiction at the Trans-Chinese Film Academy Festival in Beijing, the Gold Award in Open Category at the HK Independent Short Film Video Awards, three outstanding awards at the China International (King Bonn) New Media Shorts Award including an award for the actress Melendez Violeta T, and the Audience Choice Award at the International Student FIlm And Video Festival of Beijing Film Academy.
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.
