DOLE urges victims to testify vs illegal recruiters

BAYOMBONG, Nueva Vizcaya (September 13) -- Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) officials have encouraged victims of illegal recruiters to come out in the open and testify against the operators of these unscrupulous recruitment firms.

Undersecretary Romeo Lagman in a recent press conference said that victims should coordinate with their field offices to avail of their program designed to take down illegal recruitment firms through the judicial process.

He said that they are offering a program which offers victims to testify against illegal recruiters while being protected and given preference for deployment abroad.

"While reports show that there are already 400 recruitment firms being delisted or suspended because of violations, we need to really testify against them to stop their operations and to claim our hard earned money," Lagman said.

He added that their program was designed for victims of illegal recruitment since most cases are usually dropped due to bribery and under the table settlement between the victims and the operators.

Lagman said that under their program, victims of illegal recruitment can already file their cases anywhere thru the assistance of the Philippine embassy and labor attaches'.

"And we should always check the legality of recruiters by coordinating and verifying them through our website of our nearest offices. If they do not have job order, they have no authority to recruit," Lagman said. (PIA NVizcaya) [top]
