Better Working Conditions for OFWs in Saudi Arabia

Posted by:

After a year of waiting, overseas Filipino workers will now enjoy more benefits from the Saudi government. This is after the Saudi Cabinet has approved the Filipino domestic workers recruitment agreement, which had been signed by the Philippines and Saudi labor.

The labor agreement was approved by Saudi Cabinet last November 3, 2014. This covers housemaids, babysitters, laundrywomen, family drivers, cooks and gardeners.

The agreement impose that OFWs had to received a minimum monthly salary of SR 1, 500, their own bank accounts, weekly rest days and daily rest periods.

OFWs will also have paid vacation leave, free communication and humane treatment, and non-withholding of passports and work permits.

The labor pact will imply lifting the freeze on the recruitment of Filipino domestic workers which was ordered because of arising complaints of domestic workers abuse by Saudi families.

Department of Labor and Employment Secretary Rosalinda Dimapilis-Baldoz and Saudi Labor Deputy Minister Mufarrej bin Saad Al-Haqbani signed the labor agreement on hiring Filipino household service workers last May 2013.

Pinay DH Complained Harassment by Employer in Saudi

Posted by:

A Pinay domestic helper in Qassim, Saudi Arabia appealed for help from the Philippine Overseas Labor Office (POLO) from her employer whom she accused of harassment.

The Filipina DH reported that she suffered ‘unpleasant overtures’ from her Saudi employer who molested her on August 26, 28 and 29. She filed a complaint against her employer at the Philippine Embassy.

The Pinay OFW was brought to the Saudi capital to stay with his employers’ relatives when they left with his family for Dubai.  He also told the driver to bring the Pinay DH to the Philippine Embassy and withdraw the complaint.

According to Arab News, a source at POLO-Riyadh said that the Pinay DH’s case will be endorsed to the Saudi Social Welfare Administration who will contact the employer for her exit visa.

The Pinay DH wanted to transfer to another employer but a legal officer advised her that she would have to return first to the Philippines to process her documents without violating the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s labor laws.

The Filipina OFW also admitted to being illegally deployed to Saudi Arabia, stating that her papers were processed by an agency that no longer exists so she was transferred to another agency.

Arrived last May, the Pinay DH received a monthly salary that is below of what the Philippine and Saudi governments had agreed upon.

The Pinay DH is staying at the Bahay Kalinga under POLO-Riyadh, along with other runaway female OFWs.
