The Philippine government has blacklisted 21 foreign recruitment agencies, 19 erring local recruitment firm and direct employers with an aim to remove overseas industry misfits. They are either suspended or their licenses were canceled by the labor department.

Philippine Overseas Employment Administration Secretary Bernard Olalia reported to Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III regarding the cleansing of the industry to intensify their program of protecting Filipino workers and uplift the welfare of job seekers abroad.

According to POEA, those recruitment agencies who have been suspended or had to face fines and cancellation of licenses violated certain recruitment rules starting from January to July this year.

There were also licenses that got restored upon the approval of their appeal. POEA furthermore wants to disclose the list of suspended and blacklisted agencies for the public’s knowledge especially for Filipinos seeking jobs abroad.
