POEA cancels another recruitment agency’s license

Posted by:

 

After two recruitment agencies were reported to be overcharging applicants of placement fees to be able to work abroad, POEA has ordered a new cancellation of recruitment license. According to the POEA website, Global Care International Manpower Services collected placement fee from a Filipino caregiver deployed to Taiwan.

The complainant was asked to pay Php 105,000 for placement fee, Php 10,000 for training cost and Php 5,250 for medical tests, all paid for but was not issued receipts.

The complainant was able to work for three weeks in Taiwan, but returned to the country after she suffered physical abuse and working overtime. Caregivers fall in the category of household service workers, thus, they should not be paying placement fees.
Global Care’s recruitment license is ordered to be revoked, and the amount illegally collected from the complainant to be returned.

At present, crisis alert level in Thailand is at alert level 1 (precautionary phase).

POEA to Launch Mobile App This Year

Posted by:

The Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) is set to launch early this year a smartphone application that will help Filipinos who wish to work abroad know if they are dealing with POEA-licensed and accredited recruitment agencies.

The POEA mobile application, which is already announced by Administrator Cacdac on his twitter account, aims to give aspiring OFWs the convenience of checking the status of the recruitment firm that they are transacting with for a job abroad just through their mobile devices.

To be developed by WorkAbroad.ph, the creation of a smartphone app is part of the Memorandum of Agreement signed by POEA Administrator Hans Leo Cacdac and WorkAbroad.ph Managing Director Robert John Oh last 2013.
