poea-logo1The Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) Administrator Hans Leo J. Cacdac has cancelled the license of Greengate Manpower Services Co., to decieve the POEA of submitting documents of workers working as the jobs they have applied but once they are deployed, they will be working for another job.

POEA has found that Greengate Manpower Services Co., processed a document of a Filipina to work as a hospital janitress in Saudi Arabia but once she signed her work contract and flew in to Saudi Arabia, she was surprised that she will be working as a domestic helper.

This was the agency’s third time to do this misinterpresentation of an OFW job.

The Filipina said that she applied with another agency, but was surprised that Greengate Manpower Services Co processed her documents.

Section 2e of Rule I, Part VI of the POEA Rules and Regulations prohibits misrepresentation, which is defined as furnishing or publishing any false notice, information or document in relation to recruitment and employment of OFWs.

“Greengate, by providing POEA information different from the intended overseas job, engaged in re-processing and effectively avoided the protective regulations on the deployment of household service workers,” Cacdac said.

Re-processing of documents is prohibited under the POEA rules, is a scheme of documenting hired workers with the POEA through a job order that pertains to work different from the actual overseas job or different employer.

As a consequence of the penalty of cancellation of license, the officers and directors of the agency at the time of the commission of the offense was disqualified to recruit and deploy Filipinos for overseas jobs.
