NOC and 2-year ban will stay in Oman

Posted by:

The two-year employment ban for expatriates who will leave their jobs without a no objection certificate or NOC will remain until the economic situation in Oman improves.

 

Oman visa

 

 

Overseas Filipino workers or OFWs should remember that the Sultanate of Oman still imposes the rule and should comply to the regulation.

 

An OFW can transfer to a different company if his employer agrees and grant him a no objection certificate or NOC. Without an NOC, the OFW cannot join another company and will result to a two-year employment ban if transferring is pursued.

 

The Minister of Manpower thinks that the rule protects the companies from workers whom they bring and train to work in Oman then leave after a few months only because of a higher offer.

 

OFWs are seen as highly skilled people and in demand to take positions available in different work sectors.

Changes in Qatar Law for Recruitment of HSWs

Posted by:

Overseas Filipino workers, particularly the household service workers (HSWs) or domestic helpers, will be affected by the rationalized Qatar Law for hiring them.

 

The Ministry of Administrative Development, Labour and Social Affairs highlights the following when employing a domestic worker.

 

  • A contract with the recruitment agency who will provide the HSW should be signed in advance.

 

  • Employers must read the contract carefully and need to have a copy, as well as copies of bills for any advance payment made.

 

  • The contract must be approved by the department concerned at the Labour of Ministry aside from being signed by the prospective employer and recruitment agency.

 

  • The contract must include a fixed term and guarantee (probation) period, which is three months, and will come into effect once the HSW joins the employer.

 

  • The employer is responsible for the HSW to get a medical check-up done within two weeks from arrival to ensure they are free from any disease.

 

  • If there is a delay in providing the requested HSW, the employer has the right to demand compensation.

 

  • HSWs can be send back home within the probation period if found medically unfit; carry out the duties he or she came to perform; one of the parties fails to fulfill or violate terms of the contract; or the competent authority declined to process the residency permit.

 

Before hiring, a prospective employer must received first the candidate’s curriculum vitae to make a choice. The processing of entry visa will start once the Ministry has approved the contract.

 

The Ministry said the employer has the right to file a complaint in their office if the recruitment agency fails to meet the terms in the written contract signed and approved by them.

OFW Died at PH Refugee Camp in KSA

Posted by:

A stranded overseas Filipino worker died in a temporary shelter handled by the Philippine Embassy and Philippine Overseas Labor Office (POLO)in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

 

Fifty-year old Jose Berja died last Sunday at a villa where male distressed and stranded OFWs stays. According to his fellow OFW, Berka suffered from heart attack Saturday morning and was announced dead on arrival when rushed to the hospital later in the afternoon.

 

Berja’s wife is staying at Bahay-Kalinga, a women’s shelter also under the care of POLO-OWWA in Riyadh.

 

The Philippine Embassy and POLO-OWWA provides lodging for distraught and abandoned OFWs while waiting for their repatriation. Some of these OFWs escape from their employers because of maltreatment.

 

But the increasing number of OFWs seeking refuge made the villas overcrowded and pose health concerns to each of them. They need medical attention since many of them have been stranded for years.
