POEA Cancels License Of Non-Stop Overseas Employment

Administrator Hans Leo J. Cacdac has ordered the cancellation of the license of NonStop Overseas Employment Corporation for submitting two different visas and after committing three counts of violation of the POEA regulation on misrepresentation. 

Cacdac said Non-Stop had requested for processing of a worker bound for Qatar with a visa as General Cleaner but after verification was found to be in the category of a Secretary. 

Non-Stop claimed that the real job order for the worker was for the position of secretary and it mistakenly submitted the visa for general cleaner. The agency tried to correct the supposed error and submitted a visa for a secretary. 

Upon further scrutiny, however, the POEA found out that except for the position titles, the two visas have the same issuance and validity dates, visa number, visa type, duration of residence, and other markings. 

Cacdac said Labor Secretary Rosalinda Dimapilis-Baldoz has instructed the POEA to prioritize resolution of recruitment violation cases involving household service workers (HSWs) and other low-salaried overseas Filipino workers. 

Section 2 (e) of Rule I, Part VI of the 2002 POEA Rules and Regulations Governing the Recruitment and Employment of Land-based Overseas Workers prohibits licensed recruitment agencies from engaging in acts of misrepresentation in connection with recruitment and placement of workers such as furnishing or publishing any false notice, information or document in relation to recruitment or employment of an OFW.
