To my fellow OFWs, please note of the following Memorandum Circulars Nos. 3 and 4 respectively issued by the POEA to Licensed Recruitment Agencies in the Philippines.
OFWs should be aware that the recruitment agencies that deployed OFWs have an obligation to assist and monitor the welfare of their deployed overseas Filipino workers. Therefore, be reminded that recruitment agencies cannot just ignore a call or complaint from an OFW in distress against their foreign principals/employers.
Likewise, the Philippine Overseas Labor Office should always be ready to serve and hear the grievances of our fellow OFWs and proper coordination with the recruitment agencies must be made at all times.
