OWWA Identifies 6 of 7 Filipinos Killed In The Yemen Attack

The Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) yesterday identified six of the seven overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) who were killed in the recent terrorists attack in Yemen.
OWWA Administrator Carmelita Dimzon identified the six slain OFWs as Dr. Ruben Valenzuela, Hezel Pueblos, Edward Anthony de Guzman, Marivic Corilla Bandenas, Marian David and Aurora Gormate Yumul.

The victims’ families were already informed of the benefits accorded to them being documented workers in Yemen.

Dimzon also said that the families were also told that they are already working out on the repatriation of the victims’ remains but could not give further details on the exact date of the arrival because of the tight December booking.

Dimzon, however, did give any comment on the seventh female nurse victim who was also killed in the attack.

Dimzon said they are still coordinating with Yemen authorities to give them pertinent documents so that they could also inform the family of the victim.

The OWWA administrator added the agency has no record with them on the seventh victim neither with the Philippine Overseas Employment and Administration (POEA).

According to Dimzon, she admitted that out of 1,500 OFWs in Yemen, only 900 of them were documented and members of the agency. She said that together with the other agencies, they have already sent a team in Yemen to meet the OFWs who wanted a voluntary repatriation.

DOLE to OFWs: Observe, learn, and comply with KSA law

The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) advises overseas Filipino workers in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to strictly observe, and follow the KSA law.

“Observe, comply, and honor the laws in your country of destination,” Labor & Employment chief Rosalinda Baldoz, in a statement said.

The labor chief made the statement after receiving a letter from the Assistant Secretary Petronila P. Garcia of the Department of Foreign Affairs informing the DOLE of a recent issuance from Ministry of Interior of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) entitled “Rules Governing Law-Breaching Foreign Workers”.

According to the said issuance, the Ministry of Interior, represented by its law enforcement agencies, shall undertake the pursuit, apprehension, penalizing, and deportation of foreign workers who work for their own account, or illegal labor; those who abscond from work; overstayers, including holders of Hajj, Umrah, tourism, medical treatment, transit, or visit (of all types) visas; and infiltrators arrested outside the border area. It will also pursue anyone who employs offending foreign wokers; allows his workers to work for their own account; provides cover, harbors, or transports the same or aids them by any means, as well as recruiters who do not report overstaying recruits.

An offending foreign worker shall be deported at the expense of the employer, unless the worker absconds from work and is reported immediately. Foreign workers entering the Kingdom under Hajj or Umrah visa, visit visa of all types, or other types of visa, or absconded from work, shall be deported at the expense of the person employing him.

If he is working on his own account, he shall be deported at his own expense, or at the expense of the state, if he cannot afford a ticket.

Otherwise, he shall be deported at the expense of the company, establishment, or person sponsoring his visit, the carrier, or the person providing him with cover. Any deported foreigner shall be prohibited from entering the Kingdom, in accordance with the periods and procedures specified in regulations to be issued, pursuant to a decision by the Minister of the Interior.

Hajj and Umrah companies and establishment shall notify the competent authorities of any visitor who overstays his Hajj or Umrah visa.

The same should be done by a person sponsoring a visitor who prolongs his stay in the Kingdom.

Otherwise, said sponsor shall be deemed to be committing an instance of cover up. Companies, private establishments, and individuals should ensure that the foreign workers they hire obtain and renew their iqama, or the residence, and work permits in due time.

They should not employ workers of third parties, nor allow their workers to work for third parties, without following established statutory rules or work for their account. Within five days, they should notify the competent authorities of workers absconding from work.

Violators of this rule will be deprived of the right to obtain work or visit visa for a period not exceeding five years.

Government agencies should also ensure that all foreigners working for them or in fields falling within their jurisdictions have valid iqama and work permits or are employed under officially approved contracts.

“It pays to be obedient. You will never go wrong if you are following the rules and regulations of any country you are in,” Baldoz said.

“If you have nothing to worry about, you can do you work properly and you will be able to realize what you came there for,” Baldoz added.

VP Binay fears January execution of Joselito Zapanta if blood money is not paid

Joselito Zapanta, the overseas Filipino workers (OFW) on death row in Saudi Arabia, may be executed in January if his family will not be able to raise the blood money needed to save him.

This was according to Vice President Jejomar Binay, who renewed his appeal to Filipinos to contribute to the amount raised by the Philippine government, which currently stands at SR520,831 (P6,133,722).

“I would like to take this opportunity to appeal to our kababayans as the victim’s family is now becoming insistent,” said Binay, the presidential adviser on OFW concerns, in a statement Tuesday.

“We fear that the execution may happen in January if the blood money is not paid,” he added.

Zapanta was sentenced to death in 2009 for killing his Sudanese landlord allegedly out of self-defense. He was given reprieve several times in the past, once in November of last year, and another in March of this year.

10,000 OFW contracts in Taiwan not extended due to shooting incident - recruit consultant

More than 10,000 overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) from Taiwan have returned to the country angry after their job contracts were not extended over the incident where members of the Philippine Coast Guard killed a Taiwanese fisherman off Batanes two months ago, a recruitment consultant said in a news release.

Most of the OFWs who returned from Taiwan have worked in the island for the past three years and were due for an extension for another three years, said Emmanuel Geslani.
“They return to join the four million unemployed Filipinos here,” Geslani said, calling these OFWs “collateral damage” in the diplomatic row between the two countries.

Soon after the incident, Taiwan has stopped the issuance of visas to all visiting Filipinos, including OFWs, effectively stopping the hiring or extending the employment of OFWs.

Most of the returning OFWs have contracts that expired these in the months of May and June.
In a related development, newly elected party-list Congressman Roy Seneres Sr. of the OFW Family Club party has asked the government to disclose the findings of the Department of Justice regarding the May 9 shooting that caused the rift between Taiwan and the Philippines.

DOJ Secretary Leila de Lima previously announced that the Philippine Coast Guard was at fault in the incident, providing no further details of the investigation that followed the shooting.

Taiwan has demanded for an official apology from the Philippine government, the prosecution of those involved in the shooting, compensation for the family of the victim, and fishing talks with the Philippines.

OFW Dies in Jeddah Consulate

An Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) who has been seeking assistance for repatriation from the Philippine government since 2011 after he was diagnosed with ulcer died Wednesday last week inside the consulate in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) spokesperson Raul Hernandez said repatriation is now being arranged for the Filipino who was identified by migrant rights watchdog Migrante as Danilo Grefadilyo of Sorsogon. Hernandez said the OFW was last seen resting alone in one of the benches of the consulate on April 3, long before undocumented Filipinos began camping out near the consulate.
Grefadilyo, who appeared sick and weak, told consulate officials that he has not eaten for several days due to digestion problems and that “the food he eats was being rejected by his stomach, said Hernandez. (Roy C. Mabasa)

Baldoz warns OFWs against fake receipts

Labor Secretary Rosalinda Baldoz warned the public on Wednesday against groups or individuals issuing fake receipts in places frequented by overseas Filipino workers such as the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration.

The fake receipts were issued by some employees of manning agencies who reported the case to the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration, OWWA said.

Baldoz also instructed OWWA chief Carmelita Dimzon to publish notices and issue advisory to recruitment and manning agencies to put internal control mechanisms to prevent the illegal practice.

“The public should be well-advised on the matter for the safety of  overseas Filipino workers (OFWs). Benefits may be compromised if the OFWs’ names are not registered as OWWA members. OWWA members are assured of the social and protection programs and services offered by the Agency,” Baldoz said.

For her part, Dimzon said OWWA is now coordinating with the National Bureau of Investigation to help investigate all possible sources of fake documents and bring to court those responsible.

OFWs are ambassadors of the Philippines

Overseas Filipino Workers in Arab countries especially in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) must respect immigration and labor laws of their host countries, Vice President Jejomar Binay said Tuesday.

“Remember that you are our ambassadors as well, so your actions also reflect on our country,” Binay reminded OFWs as he repeated his call on Philippine Embassy officials in Saudi Arabia to speed up the processing of papers of undocumented workers who needed to be sent back home and to runaways who needed shelter and legal assistance.

Reports say there are about 80 OFWs camping outside of the Philippine Consulate in Jeddah.

Binay, who is also the Presidential Adviser on OFW concerns, made the appeal as the KSA government implements the April 6 three-month reprieve issued by King Abdullah for foreign workers who have problems with their papers.

The reprieve delays the arrests of foreign workers as well as gives them the opportunity to correct their documents.

Working under employers who are not original sponsors is a violation of immigration laws in the Kingdom.

“For workers affected by the Saudization policy, they need to be able to legally transfer from their original sponsors to their current employers. Workers who have long run away from their original sponsors and no longer have valid residency permits or passports meanwhile are in a different category altogether. Theirs is an immigration problem and no longer a labor one,” the Vice President said.

Saudi Arabia, one of the favorite destinations of Filipino workers, is now observing Nizaqat: a government drive to provide more jobs to Saudi nationals.

There is no amnesty for foreigners illegally staying in Saudi Arabia.

Illegal Filipinos Numbers Up In Oman

Muscat: There has been a 100-per cent increase in the number of Filipino migrant workers who don't have any valid residency or work permits in Oman, according to a newly released data.

The data, known as the 'Stock Estimate of Filipinos Overseas', presented by the Commission on Overseas Filipinos (CFO), showed that in 2011, there were some 6,400 undocumented Filipino workers in the Sultanate, whereas in 2010, the number was 3,000.

According to the Ministry of Manpower (MoM), some 12,000 expatriate workers are absconding in Oman, mainly in the fishing areas in the governorate of Al Wusta. "This is a pressing problem across all the governorates in the country. I request government departments, private-sector enterprises, and citizens to cooperate with the MoM to resolve this problem," a senior official of the MoM said.

Expressing shock over the rising figures, Chairperson of Filipino Community Social Club Janete Daang said it is very surprising that the number is so high even though the Philippines Embassy is doing a lot to reduce the number of undocumented Filipinos. "A large number of them enter illegally from other countries, which makes matters worse for us," she told Times of Oman.

Recently, the Philippines Embassy in Muscat closed an employment loophole, which enabled undocumented Filipino nationals to enter the Sultanate without the formal permission of the mission after fleeing from their sponsors in neighbouring countries.

Ernesto C. Bihis, Labour Attaché of the Philippines Embassy in Muscat, noted that all Filipino nationals working in Oman traditionally required a "no objection certificate" to be issued by their embassy in Muscat as part of the visa-application procedure.

"This is mandatory if they are hired from the Philippines," he remarked.
Earlier, migrants entering the country across the border had not been subjected to such procedures, creating a situation where the embassy was not able to properly vouch for them or for the employer.

"We know the embassy officials have managed to change the rule after continuous dialogue with Omani authorities since undocumented workers are more likely to end up with onerous contracts and to encounter immigration or labour cases," Janete Daang added.
Non-payment of salaries.

The most common reasons for their decision to run away from their employers in neighbouring countries are the non-payment of salaries and sometimes physical abuse by their employers. "From just 1,500 in the year 2000, the number of Filipinos without valid residence or work permits is steadily growing in Oman," noted the CFO report.

The Stock Estimate of Filipinos Overseas also showed that in 2011, there were only 140 permanent migrants (immigrants, dual citizens, or legal permanent residents) in the Sultanate, whose stay did not depend on work contracts.

The number of temporary migrants, including Filipinos who are employed overseas but are expected to return, stood at 43,318 in 2011. Students, trainees, entrepreneurs, and businessmen are also considered to be part of this category. 

In 2011, there were 10.46 million overseas Filipinos — five per cent of international migrants worldwide — spread across 217 countries.

To avoid being tricked, the Department of Foreign Affairs has advised all job hunters to check the official list of labour-market opportunities on the Consulate General's website.

The CFO was established in 1980 to promote the interests of Filipino immigrants and permanent residents in other countries and to preserve and strengthen overseas Filipino communities all over the world .

The data covered 214 countries in 2009, 217 in 2010, and 227 in 2011, wherein the CFO noted there were 10.46 million overseas Filipinos, up from 8.6 million in 2009 and 9.5 million in 2010.

Part of the estimate was taken from the remittance records of overseas Filipinos and the departure/arrival documents filled out by immigrants at all airports and seaports in the Philippines.

Get Resume Help And Greatly Improve Your Odds

Do you want to create the amazing standout resume that will give you a better chance of achieving the job you want? Unless you have a lot of experience in Human Resources, it is very difficult to figure out what will count as an amazing standout resume.

However, there are some secrets of the trade that anyone who is determined to write well can pick up. The key to a good resume is that you are willing to look at your career with new eyes and describe it in such a way that others can follow the story of your success.

Most people are used to thinking about their resumes in terms of duties and responsibilities, but this is not really the way to create your amazing standout resume. If you think about it, you will understand the reason why intuitively. Every single person who ever held your past positions has had duties and responsibilities very similar to yours. These duties are simply not the things that make you special as a job candidate. You need to transcend this old fashioned idea about how a resume should look and go further. How do you do it?

The ultimate key to an amazing standout resume is going from ideas about duties to ideas about achievements. To understand exactly how this works, an example would probably be helpful. Let's say that your job is logistics. Logistics is, for many people, a boring area of industry -- but it is very necessary.

Let's say that, as part of your job in logistics, your target is to reduce the cost of sending packages by five cents. In other words, your principal duty is to achieve this target. If you do not manage to do so, you may lose your job.

Now, let's imagine that by looking at the different ways to send packages and figuring out a new way of deciding which packages should be sent "First Class," you manage to save ten cents on every package mailed instead of just five. This is an achievement: You literally doubled your target, and that means that over time, you saved twice as much as anticipated. Employers will be interested to know how you did it, and they will be more likely to believe that you are capable of doing the same for them. This makes you unique and special compared to others.

You should also notice something else about the amazing standout resume -- it has numbers. Numbers about cost savings and other issues can be understood by anyone, regardless of whether they know the responsibilities of a given job. An amazing standout resume is a powerful story of your achievements backed up by numbers. It is the numbers that serve as evidence and prove that you are not boasting. So, next time you need to write a resume, do yourself a favor. Think in terms of achievements and make sure that it is an amazing standout resume. That's the way to get the job that you really want!

3 Reasons Why Only 5% of Resumes Are Above Average

Every day, about 300 different resumes come into my staffing firm. Unfortunately for many, it would be generous to say a mere 5% of incoming resumes are well-written, thus giving the applicant a significant chance at getting what the market considers to be a competitive job.

Here are 3 mistakes that the other 95% consistently make:

1. Abusing the adjective "Entrepreneurial"

The adjective "entrepreneurial" is just like "spiritual" as it has different meanings, some positive, some negative, some neutral to everyone.

However, both to myself and, from what I've experienced over the years, to a lot of small business employers, the word is a big negative.

Here's what many of the small business entrepreneurs whom I've worked with think:

If someone is so entrepreneurial, what's to say that they won't go start their own business in a few months, thus leaving my company and me nowhere. Also, if this person is as entrepreneurial as they claim, I am going to possibly be hiring a future competitor?

When it comes to corporate, using entrepreneurial is neither here nor there, but if you use the word have an example as to why you are one of the very few who can back it up. A sentence that starts like this seems more average than you would know:

"An entrepreneurial sales professional..."

2. Stop Tweaking Your Resume - It's Like Getting Plastic Surgery One Too Many Times

Market yourself how you want to market yourself and how you want other to see you. 99.99% of job seekers end up tweaking their resume to what they heard may be a good term during elevator chat or what their cousin claims got them their job.

With your resume, it is imperative that you feel comfortable with how you are represented and stick to that making tweaks infrequently. Changing too often is a psychological negative as there are too many drivers that have nothing to do with your resume that could be the reason as to why a particular employer did not get back to you.

Also, if you find yourself having to tweak your resume more than a few sentences max for every job you are applying to, you are applying to jobs that you are not qualified for.

Make a rule every time you change your resume:

Make the rule that if you change your resume because you heard that your friend got their job after they did x, you must wait two weeks prior to changing it again. This should make you think more and make unnecessary, unhelpful changes less.

3. Don't make your objective more than 3 lines.

The reason why many online publications have short paragraphs is because web readers get very scared and off-put by the thought of reading long paragraphs. You will never see a chunk of text at the top of any article because the reader would have the bookmarked the next day.

If you must write a book prior to having the resume reader see your experience (and sometimes it's necessary), make it well written and form a new paragraph after every two sentences.

Also, always widen out your margins as the odds of the resume reader reading the 2nd page of your resume is very, very low. Though, don't prompt this to make your resume 1 page. Instead, the MS Word real-estate to your advantage.

In Summation:

After these three 3 are taken care of, I"ll gladly give more. However, by that time, hopefully you've followed these 3 enough to where you are employed by the "stretch job" that you thought would not even call you for a 1st interview.

Former OFW Wins State Lottery

A former overseas Filipino worker (OFW) said he was happy to win half of the 36.7 million pesos (Dh3.29 million) from a government-run lottery because it could help his cancer-stricken son, a local paper said.

The 60-year-old winner of the March 17 lottery (lotto) draw of the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) was crying when he got his money, PCSO assistant budget and accounting manager Paloma Malinao told the Philippine Star.

The OFW, whose name was not released, was bankrupt and had lost all his savings since his son had started treatment for stage 4 cancer, said Malinao.

The OFW’s other younger son, a second-year college student, was also forced to drop out of school, said Malinao.

The OFW was relieved that his win could help him redeem the mortgage papers of his house which was recently foreclosed by the bank, according to PCSO General Manager Jose Ferdinand Rojas.

But above all, the OFW’s main concern, is the recovery of his bedridden son, said Rojas, adding this was the reason why the OFW was “not crying for joy” despite winning the PCSO’s top lottery this week.

The other winner of the lottery was from suburban Muntinlupa City.

OFW Zapanta given 3-month reprieve — VP Binay

Vice President Jejomar Binay yesterday  announced that Joselito Zapanta, the overseas Filipino worker (OFW) scheduled for execution in Saudi Arabia, has been given a three-month reprieve by the Saudi government.

At a press conference at the Coconut Palace, Binay, the presidential adviser for OFW Concerns, said Saudi King Abdullah has given an order to defer the execution of all qizas or death penalty cases in the Arab country, including that of Zapanta.

He said this was confirmed by Adbulaziz Abdulrahman Al Gaeit, the Assistant of the Undersecretary for Public Rights of the Emir’s Office, who met with the Philippine Embassy officials in Riyadh.
Binay said Zapanta’s reprieve begins the day after the deadline set by the victim’s relatives for the payment of the blood money.

However, the Vice President clarified that the reprieve did not mean that the deadline set for Zapanta’s family to pay the blood money has also been extended.  “There is still no decision from the victim’s family on this matter. But this is to be given attention by our embassy in Riyadh,” he said.  Binay again thanked King Abdullah “for yet another humanitarian gesture.”

“His benevolence has given our kababayan a three month lease on life, and his family additional time to raise the blood money,” he said.  “We also wish to thank the Emir’s Office for their efforts in facilitating the amicable settlement and forgiveness, as well as the extension of the deadlines, allowing the maximum period for the settlement of the amount,” Binay added.

He also pointed to the work being done by the Philppine Ambassador to Saudi, Ambassador Tago and the entire officials and officers of in our Embassy, and the DFA headed by Secretary Albert del Rosario, in their efforts to help our countrymen abroad.”” he further said.

The Vice President also revealed that President  Aquino and Zapanta’s mother, Maymona, both wrote King Abdullan on March 9 to ask for his help.

Binay said Zapanta and his mother were able to talk on March 10, when the latter, accompanied by Philippine Embassy officials, visited her son in jail.

The Vice President reiterated his appeal for help to come up with the full amount needed to secure Zapanta’s freedom.

POEA Suspend Al-Masiyah Overseas Placement Agency

POEA Administrator Hans Leo J. Cacdac yesterday ordered the preventive suspension of the recruiters of a Filipino household worker who allegedly committed suicide five (5) days after she arrived in Abu Dhabi.

Administrator Cacdac said he ordered the suspension of Al-Masiya Overseas Placement Agency, Inc., and Al Madina Recruitment -- its counterpart agency in United Arab Emirates -- for their apparent oversight in monitoring the actual condition of Alona Mercado Bagayan prior to her death.

Cacdac said Bagayan was recruited by Al-Masiyah Overseas Placement to work as a household worker. She left the Philippines on January 30, and was turned over by Al Madina Recruitment to her employer on February 1. She was found dead on February 5, 2013.

Cacdac ordered the temporary suspension of Al-Masiya for engaging in the placement of workers in jobs harmful to public health, and its failure to report to the POEA the death of its deployed worker. Cacdac said the death of Bagayan could have been prevented if Al-Masiya complied with its duties and obligation as provided under the POEA rules.

“Under POEA regulations, agencies are obliged to monitor the situation of OFWs – especially household service workers – as soon as they arrive in their workplace,” Cacdac said.

The administrator said Al Madina Recruitment was suspended from further employing Filipino workers for defaulting on its contractual obligation to the worker, and for gross negligence leading to the death of the Bagayan.

"There is strong evidence indicating that the two (2) agencies committed serious violations relative to the recruitment and placement of the subject OFW, and also considering that Al-Masiya has nine (9) pending recruitment violation cases before the POEA, we believe that there are valid and justifiable grounds that the continued operation of the two (2) agencies would lead to further violations and exploitation of the workers being recruited," Cacdac said.
