According to POEA Administrator Hans Leo J, Cacdac. due to the growing numbers of undocumented OFWs in China, the country has not relaxed its immigration policy with regard to unskilled labor including nannies, caregivers, and household helpers.  He added that “Most importantly,  business and tourist visas cannot be converted to work visa, which is required of foreign workers before they can work legally in China.”

Cacdac also warned teachers regarding job offers in the internet for English language teaching positions in China without work visas.

The OFW Code of Discipline

Posted by:

The OFW Code of Discipline:

Duty to Oneself, Family and Fellow OFWs

Many Filipinos opt to work in a foreign land for the sake of their loved ones’ betterment. This motivation is one of the reasons why the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) created the OFW Code of Discipline.

 

The code encompasses what an OFW’s duties to himself, to his family, fellow OFWs, country of origin and destination, and to his employer are.

 

DUTY TO ONESELF

DOs

  • Assert the occupation, position and job scope to which you have been hired for.
  • Assert one’s entitlements to all wages, compensation, and benefits agreed upon in the employment contract.
  • Be professional; maintain self-respect, good image and track record.
  • Ensure personal health as well as psycho-social and economic well-being; be aware of one’s vulnerabilities to HIV/AIDS.
  • Be responsible for one’s safety and security at all times, including that of one’s belongings and personal property.
  • Notify the Philippine embassy or diplomatic mission of your presence in the country of work.

DON’TS

  • Engage in prostitution, drug trafficking, illegal recruitment, human smuggling and trafficking or other transnational crimes whether as principal party or accessory.
  • Possess deadly weapons, explosives and prohibited drugs, alcohol, pornographic or other contraband materials.
  • Solicit services of unauthorized manpower brokers and fixers for underground migration.
  • Don’t fall to “4D” jobs – dirty, dangerous, demeaning and (unreasonably) difficult.

 

DUTY TO FAMILY

DOs

  • Provide ample financial and moral support to your family in the Philippines.
  • Communicate with your family as often as you can and make your presence felt just as if you were around.
  • Provide them detailed information and documents about your overseas employment.
  • Be faithful to your spouse.

 DON’Ts

  • Abandon your family and refuse/discontinue support for the children.
  • Bring your family, especially young children, to hardship posts or countries where there is high risk to one’s welfare and security.

DUTY TO FELLOW OFWs

DOs

  • Assist and cooperate with other  OFWs working in the same site, especially in times of crisis.
  • Support OFW organizations of Filipino diaspora groups and contribute to their productive role.

DON’Ts

  • Degrade a colleague or put him/her in bad light in order to get a position/rank or other personal gains.
  • Act as an unofficial remittance courier for all its risks of loss or robbery or spend for personal use money entrusted by fellow workers.
  • Invent lies and allegations against fellow OFWs to have them deported, detained or to be under police surveillance.

OFWs, You Have Been Warned Repeatedly

Posted by:

Overseas Filipino workers or OFWs have been taking every jobs possible to earn for their family. And many illegal recruiters were taking advantage of this eagerness from OFWs to work abroad.

How to Avoid Illegal Recruitment

For most OFWs, being a household service worker or HSWs is the easiest way for them to work abroad and reach for their dreams. Many of the OFWs working abroad as HSWs were deployed in Middle East, as demand for the service continues to rise.

But when the UAE Ministry of Interior imposed a new standard contract for HSWs to protect both them and their employers rights, the deployment was affected.

OFWs are brought by using fake job position. They are fronted as sales ladies, clerks, cashier, waitress or salon staff just to meet the demands for HSWs. Illegal recruiters not only exposed OFWs to possible abuse by foreign employers, but themselves as well to penalties from the Philippine government.

How to Identify Overseas Job Scams

OFWs are warned over and over again not to accept job offers abroad from recruiters who would give them work visa for jobs they didn’t apply to. They’re also reminded not to sign a new contract upon arriving at their work destination abroad.

Beware of Employment Contract Substitution

Presently, POEA are implementing strict rules regarding HSWs deployment in the Middle East. But this applies only to new hires and does not affect OFWs who’ve been in and out of the Kingdom to work as HSWs.

At Last, the Long Wait Will be Over for OFWs

Posted by:

Most of the time, overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) complain about the long wait for the processing of their documents from recruitment agencies. The recruitment agencies’ reply would be turned to the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA)’s slow processing of papers.

 

Good news, not only for OFWs, but for the recruitment agencies as well! POEA now has a solution to this problem. They now offer two online services, the e-payment and the Recruitment Authority Issuance systems.

 

POEA-licensed recruitment agencies can now request for processing of contracts (RFP) online  for their hired workers.  And the moment it was approved, they can now pay the fees through POEA-accredited banks via the ePayment system. Recruitment agencies can also print the overseas employment certificate (OEC) of the hired worker.

 

The Recruitment Authority Issuance System on the other hand, allows application for the approval and issuance of special recruitment authority or SRA and letter of acknowledgement. It also grant agencies to upload documentary requirements and view their application status.

 

SRA and letter of acknowledgement are issued for agencies to be able to conduct activities inside or outside their premises.

 

POEA Administrator Hans Leo J. Cacdac has also encouraged all recruitment agencies to use the online services which aims to promote a culture of efficiency, accountability and transparency.

 

But POEA clarified that these online services will be for processing documents of OFWs that are skilled and professional workers only. Contracts for household service workers or HSWs will still pass close examination and evaluation like before.
