2 Recruitment Agencies Suspended re: Fake Certificates

Posted by:

The Philippine Overseas Employment Administration or POEA had suspended two recruitment agencies for issuing fake competency certificates for household service workers.

Global Recruitment Connections-Ph Corp., and Excel Manpower Corporation was identified by POEA head Hans Leo Cacdac which was ordered preventive suspension. POEA ‘effectively prohibits the recruitment agencies from recruitment and deployment of overseas Filipino workers pending investigation and subsequent filing of appropriate recruitment violation cases against them’.

The two recruitment agencies submitted documents of household service workers, including TESDA-NC2 Certificates to POEA’s Land-based center last month. National Certificate Level 2 or NC2 from the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) is a requirement for household service workers wanting to work abroad.

Upon submission, the POEA evaluation officer found the NC2 certificates of the OFWs submitted by the two agencies have discrepancies on their security feautures, which the TESDA confirmed being counterfeit. Further investigation revealed that there were six fake TESDA-NC2 certificates submitted from Global Recruitment Coonections-Ph Corporation and nine from Excel Manpower Corporation.

POEA Won’t Stop: Another Recruitment Agency Closed Down

Posted by:

Despite the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration’s (POEA) warnings to recruiters and recruitment agencies operating illegally, some are still hard-headed and continues to ignore the call.

Bright 3 Manpower Agency, located in Makati City, is the latest addition to POEA’s list of agencies foreclosed. Administrator Hans Leo Cacdac said that a woman named Rosita Natama confirmed that she was the manager of Bright 3 and the one responsible for recruiting Filipinos to work abroad. They are processing applicants documents for overseas jobs in Dubai and Malaysia to work as service crew, salesman, saleslady, laundry personnel, house workers,construction workers, janitors, and waiters/waitress.

The agency was closed down for it has no proper license from POEA and Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) because it is recruiting workers both for local and overseas employment.

Government agencies and departments like POEA, DFA and DOLE are doing their best to constrain these people and agencies recruiting all and aspiring OFWs to work abroad without legal authorization. They are also reminding every OFWs and local Filipino workers to deal only with licensed agencies to avoid problems because they’re the ones to suffer in the end. OFWs and every Filipino dreaming of working abroad for higher compensation must learn how to know if an agency is legal or not. Also, you must avoid job offers in internet because most of them are scams. It is our aspiration and desire to work abroad that these people are taking advantage of, so it is a must that you should be very keen and careful.

DFA to OFWs in Libya: Go Home Now!

Posted by:

The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) called out to all Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) in Libya to come home immediately after Alert Level 4 was raised.

The latest events in Libya had indicated the place is no longer safe for OFWs to stay as the fight between rival militia groups escalated. Thus, they are requested to register for repatriation in the Philippine Embassy in Tripoli.

The alert level was raised once again because of the extreme security threats to Filipinos, especially in Benghazi. Other factors are the extreme political and security situation, the increasing violence and lawlessness, and the closure of major airports because of fears of the all-out civil wars.

Ever since the start of the crisis in the country, and when DFA raised Alert level 3 on May 29, they have closely monitored the security development while trying not to affect the needs of OFWs in Libya.

The department had also put up hotlines for families of OFWs in Libya where they can call for questions and concerns about the conditions of their relatives.

The Philippine Embassy in Tripoli had already reached out to OFWs in Libya, the Filipino community, and to their employer to inform them of the action made by DFA to the crisis.
The violence existing in Libya had never stopped; instead it just continues to worsen. That is why the Philippine government, thru the Department of Foreign Affairs and its Philippine Embassy in Tripoli, had started operation to repatriate OFWs because of the levelling crisis in the said country. There are an estimated 13,000 Filipinos in Libya, some who may have pass through Kuala Lumpur and Bangkok because of the no-visa requirement. Other OFWs illegally enters the Middle East through these cities.

Families and relatives of OFWs in Libya can ask them to voluntarily come back to the country rather than staying indoors of their apartments and risking their lives in the current situation of the country. OFWs are our modern heroes, but we don’t want them to make their lives at stake just because of better-paying jobs in the Middle East. Safety first, before anything else.

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.
