PH issues free documentary fees and charges on requirements for first time jobseekers

The Department of Labor and Employment, together with 18 other government agencies issues free documentary requirements for first time jobseekers.

The landmark policy, which waives the fees for government-issued documents and clearances for first time jobseekers, Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III said.

“The measure will definitely lessen the financial burden on first time jobseekers in obtaining their pre-employment documentary requirements, and gain decent employment within a shorter period of time,” the labor secretry said.

The government looks at this investment to bring double or triple fold return in achieving a productive human capital and workforce for the nation.

The first time jobseeker may avail the benefits only once, and for one copy of every document or transaction only.

To avail of the benefits, the jobseeker should be a Filipino citizen who is actively seeking employment, locally or abroad, for the first time, as certified by the barangay of which he/she is a resident.

The jobseeker shall secure and present the Barangay Certification stating that he/she is a first time jobseeker and a resident of the Barangay for at least six months.

The first time jobseeker may be a graduate of an associate degree or a bachelor’s degree, a completer of a technical-vocational course, or a high school graduate who has completed the K-12 program.

Documentary requirements covered are the CSC Certificate of Eligibility; PhilHealth ID; POEA Certificates; Mayor’s Clearance issued by Business Processing and Licensing Office; Prosecutor’s Clearance; Municipal and Regional Trial Court’s Clearances; MARINA Certificates; and TESDA National Certificates and Certificates of Competencies for those who actually underwent the process of TESDA’s Competency Assessment.
