The Provincial Government of Bulacan thru the Bulacan Public Employment Service Office facilitated Capability Enhancement Training on Anti-Illegal Recruitment /Trafficking in Persons on Overseas Employment last April 06, 2018 at the Viola Hall, Hiyas ng Bulacan Convention Center. This timely event was participated by the PESO managers from the different cities and municipalities in Bulacan. The Municipality of Baliwag was represented by its OIC-PESO Manager, Ms. Jennelyn G. Marcelo.
This capability enhancement training aims to broaden the knowledge of the PESO Managers on pressing national government issues such as illegal recruitment and anti-trafficking and also to ensure the protection of jobseekers who are seeking to overseas emloyment.
The participants were given an overview on Anti-Illegal Recruitment Campaign and Understanding the Overseas Employment Prorgram of the POEA by Mr. Clark Briz, Labor and Employment Officer III, POEA’s Workers Education Division. The different Modus Operandi of Illegal Recruiters and Pre-Employment Orientation Seminar (PEOS) – A Preventive Approach were also discussed by Mr. Briz.
Likewise, Law on Recruitment: Republic Act No. 8042 as amended by RA 10022 was discussed by Atty. Jeffrey P. Exiomo, Attorney IV, Operations and Surveillance Division. Atty. Exiomo also gave an overview of the POEA’s Legal Remedies and Services for Migrant Workers.
The topics discussed will surely capacitate the PESO Managers especially PESO Baliwag as it will soon open an OFW Desk to cater to the needs of the active and returning OFWs. Indeed, a very productive day for all the PESO Managers. To capacitate our constituents, the POEA team willl be invited by the different cities and municipalities to discuss POEA’s Overseas Empployment Program.
