Pinoy Workers Cancelling Contracts In Hong Kong

Recruitment Agency in the Philippines have expressed concern over reviews that a number of overseas Filipino workers going to Hong Kong have back-out from their employment contracts following the August 23 hostage tragedy in Manila where the place eight HongKong Tourists have been killed.

In an announcement on Sunday, the Society of Hong Kong-Accredited Recruiters of the Philippines (SHARP) mentioned its member-agencies are alarmed that Filipino candidates have additionally been apprehensive of taking jobs in Hong Kong.

“Some departing workers for Hong Kong have withdrawn their contracts and many applicants are now hesitant to apply for [jobs in] Hong Kong," mentioned SHARP president Alfredo Palmiery without providing numbers.

Palmiery nevertheless stated their counterpart associations in Hong Kong consider the August 23 hostage-taking incident won't affect the standing of Filipino workers there.
He, however, warned that Hong Kong employers may be pressured to get different nationalities for family employees if departing Filipino workers continue canceling their employment contracts, and if there would be fewer job applicants from the country.

“In reality, there are more Indonesian helpers now in Hong Kong than Filipinos," he added.

For his or her part, Hong Kong employers have assured candidates that Hong Kong employers will nonetheless rent Filipino workers.

In the same statement, Thomas Chan, president of the Hong Kong Federation of Employment Businesses, said that no job order or contract has been canceled up to now by employers of his member-agencies.

“Hong Kong employers will continue to hire Filipino household workers," mentioned Chan.

Tony Lau, president of the Normal Chamber of Manpower Businesses, in the meantime, stated none of his member-agencies have reported instances of terminated workers after the hostage-taking incident.

“Employers still want Filipino household workers because of their proven reliability and loyalty to the employers. Many employers prefer them over those of other nationalities primarily because of their proficiency in English language," Lau said.

If OFWs continue canceling their employment in Hong Kong, nevertheless, Palmiery mentioned the Philippines may lose the Hong Kong market, which will pose “great" results on the Philippine economy.

“Many Philippine businesses based in Hong Kong, [such as] remittance centers, banks and real estate companies would definitely be affected," Palmiery said.

Government records present some one hundred thousand Filipino staff were deployed in Hong Kong in 2009, about 25,000 majority are household workers. Filipinos in the area sent in some $340 million in remittances last year.

“Hong Kong is the best destination for Filipino household workers. Aside from its proximity to the Philippines and the high salary (of workers), there are very few welfare cases compared to those in the Middle East," Palmiery further added.

applicants bound for the US, including Guam for jobs falling under the
H-2B visa category or non-agricultural temporary worker.

DOLE pushes for intensified Japanese Language Training Program for Overseas Filipino Workers

Labor and Employment Secretary Rosalinda D. Baldoz said the intensified language training for aspiring OFW nurses and caregivers for Japan will raise the jobseekers probability of the tough licensure examinations set by the host country for foreign medical workers.

Baldoz recalled that latest information indicated simply 1.2 percent of overseas jobseekers have passed the exams and that no foreign jobseeker passed last year’s exams due to the difficulty of the examinees to comprehend kanji and technical language written in Japanese.

In order to remedy the crisis, Baldoz sought the suggestions of the Philippine Overseas Labor Office (POLO) in Tokyo, Japan to address the problem and came up with a number of solutions.

POLO-Tokyo Officer-in-Charge and Welfare Officer Maria Luz Talento said the language training programs should concentrate on communication skills more than simply language skills, adding that even though candidate nurses and caregivers are able to speak Japanese which clearly benefits their hospitals and/or welfare institutions, it cannot make up for an inability to communicate verbally (and in writing) with their co-workers and immediate superiors in their place of work.

Talento stated an occupation-specific language and communication skills training program is necessary not just to redress conflict and prevent miscommunications, but also to obtain jobs and retain them as well.

The POLO head said a successful occupation-specific language and communication skills training program should include some form of labor market support including but not limited to, orientations about workplace diversity, Japanese legal system, and Japanese workplace culture with topics on verbal and non-verbal communication, work values and expectations, and work relationship.

Talento also mentioned that the reason for the coming back home of the 18 Filipinos are not because that they are discouraged of not passing the exams but rather because of personal (family) and/or health reasons, adding that based on interviews made with the Overseas Filipino Workers, mainly all of them even suggested that their partaking to their first examination was a “valuable learning experience for them to get a feel of the examinations.”

Talento said the OFWs did not divulge, in any way or manner, that they are being discouraged as a result of their slim prospects of passing the Japanese licensure examinations.
