POEA Closed Down Recruiter’s Office

Posted by:

The Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) recently padlocks the office of a recruitment agency which was found operating without a valid license or authority from the Admin.

 

Administrator Hans Leo J. Cacdac said Helper-In Employment Center was reported to have been recruiting domestic workers for Hong Kong and was forwarding the applicant’s papers to SBEEE International Inc., a POEA-licensed agency, for processing.

Helper-In Employment Center is allegedly owned by the incumbet vice-president of SBEE International Inc, Lorna De Dios.

 

POEA’s Prosecution Division is filing illegal recruitment cases versus De Dios and five employees of Helper-In Employment Center, and the names of its employees and officers will be included in the list of POEA’s Persons with Derogatory Record, Cacdac said.

 

POEA Anti-illegal Recruitment Branch and Philippine National Police-MPD in Malate implemented the closure order issued by Cacdac.

 

Cacdac also said that the POEA is filing separate recruitment violation cases against SBEE International Inc.

OFWs were warned vs offers for certain jobs in Canada

Posted by:

OFWs were warned against accepting offers for certain jobs in the food service sector in Canada.

Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) head Hans J. Cacdac said the Minister of Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) moratorium is in effect on the food services sector’s access to the Temporary Foreign Worker Program.

The moratorium covers occupations in establishments engaged in preparing meals, snacks and beverages for immediate consumption include: food counter attendants, kitchen helpers, restaurant and food service managers, food service supervisors, food and beverage servers, cashiers, chefs, cooks, bakers, sales, marketing and advertising managers, executive housekeepers, cleaning supervisors, butchers, meat cutters and fishmongers, sales representatives, retail salespersons and sales clerks, hosts/hostesses, bartenders, janitors and caretakers.

The moratorium also in response to allegations that the program was being abused to displace Canadian workers.

POEA head said the moratorium will remain until the completion of the ongoing Canadian government review of the Temporary Foreign Worker Program.

With the moratorium, they will not process any new or pending application for Labor Market Opinion (LMO) and no work permit for temporary foreign workers will be approved.

However, the suspension does not include food service activities that occur within establishments such as amusement and recreation parks, hotels, theaters and civic/social associations, but leased food-service locations in facilities such as shopping malls, department stores, airports and hotels are included.

Through a resolution, the POEA governing board said that Filipinos with existing contract may return to Thailand to fulfill their contracts. In addition to the deployment ban, the Department of Foreign Affairs has also imposed Crisis Alert Level #2 in Thailand and advising Filipinos there to avoid going to public places where hostilities may occur.

 Deployment ban was also imposed months ago in Thailand due to continuous political hostilities occurring in certain areas, and the Philippine embassy in Thailand has advised Filipinos to keep a list of emergency numbers to be called in case they need assistance when the situation worsens.

Beware of bogus job offers in Portugal

Posted by:

The Philippine embassy in Lisbon, has encouraged Filipinos who desire to work in Portugal to express great caution in grabbing and accepting jobs in Portugal offered through emails and other dubious/unaccredited recruitment portals.

The embassy has pointed out a huge number of Filipinos who have received e-mails for employment in companies and law firms in Portugal, but the thing is, in order for the job offer to pursue and to process the visa or work permit for the job offer, the applicant must pay a huge sum of money through money transfers.

The embassy has advised the public to be cautious in dealing with unknown people offering employment abroad. The embassy has reminded that corporate businesses always require job interviews apart from the curriculum vitae to assess the qualification of a potential employee. The public is also warned that any job offer that ask for money for whatsoever purpose before being employed is a sign of illegal recruitment and scam.
