OFWs in Taiwan warned by POEA vs. illegal hiring to Poland or 'third-country hiring scheme’

Overseas Filipino workers (OFWs), particularly those in Taiwan were warned by the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) against unscrupulous recruiters offering jobs in Poland.

POEA warned Filipino workers in these areas against a "third-country hiring scheme".

“It has come to the attention of this administration that many Filipino workers working abroad (reportedly especially those in Taiwan) are falling victim to third-country hiring scheme,” the advisory read.

POEA said that there lots of OFWs fallong into traps of these illegal recruiters outside the Philippine and taking advantage.

“They are often (charged with) exorbitant fees only to later find that they were promised false employment. Those deployed often encounter problems in their employment or immigration status once they reach Poland,” it added.

“To avoid third-country hiring and its dangers, this administration encourages all Filipino workers desiring to work in Poland to deal only with licensed Philippine recruitment agencies in the Philippines that have valid and POEA-approved job orders for Filipino workers in Poland," it added.

This is to ensure that Filipino workers are properly documented when going to Poland thereby also ensuring the legitimacy of their employment and the protection of their welfare.
