MANILA, Philippines – A migrants’ rights group has called on the Philippine government to look into reports that a questionable document was used by a recruitment agency to deploy 20 overseas Filipino workers in Saudi Arabia.

Migrante-Middle East has urged the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) to conduct an investigation and summon the agency for using an old employment contract and another Addendum to the Contract with different employer.

Based on the information given by the OFWs to Kapatiran sa Gitnang Silangan, the Wavex Management Services Inc., located at 1564 A. Mabini, Ermita, Manila, issued to the workers an old employment contract, using the name Al Sarhad Medical Supplies Trading.

The contract has been approved by the Philippine Overseas Labor Office in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, in December 2008.

However, on July this year, the OFWs have been deployed for work to Riyadh-based Al Nuzha Project Group Company.

Migrante said the OFWs have stopped working weeks after their arrival to the job site in mid-July because of alleged labor malpractices by their employer. --Dennis Carcamo (philstar.com)
