POEA: This is for disobeying HSW rules

Posted by:

 

suspended recruitment agencies

The Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) had always been keen in advising Filipinos who wants to work abroad about the different schemes used by recruiters. This includes recruiting Filipino applicants under a different job title than the intended overseas jobs they would have.

 

This is the reason why POEA suspended 4 recruitment agencies and its foreign employers who had been found guilty of bypassing government rules and regulations on recruiting Filipino household workers (HSWs).

 

POEA administrator Hans Leo Cacdac immediately ordered the preventive suspension of four recruitment agencies namely Easyway International Recruitment Agency, Marie Gold International Manpower Services, LBH International Placement Agency, and Chosen Divine Mercy Manpower Services.  These recruitment agencies have ‘committed misrepresentation upon submission for processing the POEA documents of their HSW applicants under different job titles’.

 

Aside from the recruitment agencies, Cacdac also ordered suspension of foreign agencies and employers to stop them from recruiting more OFWs as the investigation for the filed case of misrepresentation continues.

 

OFWs may see the list of those foreign recruitment agencies and employers below to verify if they’ve been also a victim of them so they can file a case at the POEA.

 

  • Al Hamidieh Restaurant
  • Al Mansoor Labour Supply
  • Perfect Hairdressing Salon
  • Mohammad Saifa
  • Legrab Almheire
  • Smart Filtration Solutions LLC and Saeed Hussan Abdalla Abnar
  • Dessert Star Fashion Sarjah
  • Al AMathar Al Jaya Beauty Salon
  • Universal Services Center
  • Al Massam Trading LLC
  • Al Najem Trading Services
  • Hellery Fashion
  • Aberda Fashion
  • Abu Baker Al Tuob Trading LLC
  • Julfar Services Office
  • 360 Beauty Saloon
  • Al Hamtoor Trading LLC
  • Yousuf Mahmood Mohd Al Mulla
  • Ahmed Muhammed Alteini
  • Aisha Bin Hendi
  • Mohi Din Abdulkadir Ibrahim Brhende Emitates
  • Mohammed Abbas Ali Bisho Albooshi
  • Mohammed Salman Al Mansooq
  • Hmmad Sultan
  • Ali Al Shehhi

 

To avoid abuse and exploitation, OFWs and HSWs should decline visas that indicate a different job title than what they really applied for, like that of a domestic helper.  According to Cacdac, these HSWs e deployed using another visa are “not ready to work as a household help because they have not undergone the process of training and certification and language and culture orientation”.

 

Recruitment agencies using the modus operandi of acquiring visa for another job title is usually for deploying recruited HSWs bound to United Arab Emirates (UAE).

 

Again, a reminder for all Filipinos seeking overseas jobs, to be vigilant when dealing with  recruitment agencies.  Check with POEA if they are licensed and have valid job orders.  Download POEA’s mobile app to have easy access wherever you are using your mobile phones. You can download the POEA mobile app on your Android and iOS phones.

Why A Pinay DH Lose Battle Against UAE Employer

Posted by:

When a woman was molested, her first thought is to get justice. She wanted the assailant to be punished and to be put in jail. But it’s hard to get the justice you seek, when you’re in a foreign land. This is what had happened to a Pinay who was raped by her Emirati employer in Dubai.
A Pinay domestic helper lose the battle against her UAE employer when the Dubai court lowered the sentenced to her employer from seven years to one year.

The 29-year old Pinay DH accused her army corporal employer of raping her, but opposed to her allegations when the 37-year old Emirati told the court that they had consensual sex.

It was July when the Dubai Court of First Instance jailed the Emirati for seven years after sentencing him of rape with the maid. But after appealing and saying that they had consensual sex, the court lowered the seven year conviction to one year jail time.

The Pinay DH said that the incident happened after the Emirati sponsor arrived home one afternoon. He ordered the Pinay DH to wash his uniform, but upon learning that nobody was at home, he forced the Pinay DH into the room and have sex with her.

But the Emirati’s lawyer said the Pinay DH’s allegations were false, because it was the maid who invited her employer to the room. The lawyer also added that the Pinay DH wanted to blackmail her employer, asking for money in exchange for not filing a rape case.

Though the Pinay DH seek help from the Philippine Consulate and was assisted, she was still deprived of the justice she needed when the court decision was favored to the Emirati.

Filipino domestic helpers in Hong Kong, rejoice!

 
The Philippine Consulate General in Hong Kong had good news for Filipino domestic helpers there. Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (SAR) government had announced that there will be an increase in the Minimum Allowable Wage (MAW) and Food Allowance for foreign domestic helpers (FDHs).

wage  increase
Wage increase in MAW and food allowance of domestic helpers will be as follows:

  • A 2.5% increase in MAW, which is equivalent to a HK$100 increase. From HK$4,010 to HK$4,110 per month.
  • An increase of 4.8% if the employers choose to provide domestic helpers with food allowance, substituting free food. It will be increased by HK$44, meaning the previous HK$920 monthly food allowance will now be not less than HK$964 per month.

 

According to Hong Kong SAR government, the wage increase for domestic helpers will be processed by the Hong Kong Immigration Department (ImmD) for contracts signed on or before September 30, 2014. This will be possible if the applications reach the ImmD on or before October 28, 2014 to allow employers to send the signed contracts of domestic helpers to ImmD for completion of the necessary application procedures.

 

Hong Kong SAR also announced that employment contracts of domestic helpers signed on or after October 1, 2014 shall have a MAW of HK$4,110 which will be indicated in Item 5 (a) of the Employment Contract. If the employers grant a food allowance rather than the free food for domestic helpers, the amount of HK$964 shall reflect in Item 5 (b) of the Employment Contract.
