POEA warns anew against illegal nursing recruiters

by Prix D Banzon

Davao City (22 January) -- The government continues to watch recruitment agencies exacting excessive fees from applicants for overseas jobs. Its latest warning was geared towards nurses wanting to work in New Zealand.

In a press statement of the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA), it urged to report to their office applicants who might have been offered jobs in New Zealand as nurses in exchange of exorbitant fees. Filing of appropriate charges will be made against the erring agencies.

The POEA warning was issued following reports indicating that Filipino nurses who found jobs in New Zealand paid P500, 000 to P700, 000 to the manpower agencies which brokered for their deployment and employment in this country.

The report also stated that the manpower agencies assigned the nurses in rest homes with 15 percent cut from their monthly salaries.

The Philippine Embassy in Wellington, New Zealand received complaints from victims, adding that the complaints have been referred to the POEA for the filing of charges against the agencies. (PIA) [top]
