POLO suspends agency in failed Canada recruitment

06 August 2019

A Hong Kong employment agency that failed to place a Filipina helper in Canada despite collecting $46,000 from her, and then refused to return her money, has been suspended for a month by the Philippine Overseas Labor Office.

Polo officer-in-charge Antonio Villafuerte identified the agency as  Excellent Employment Service & Trading, which operate from a flat in Tung Wui building on Kimberly Road, Tsimshatsui.


Villafuerte said on Aug 4 that he suspended the agency's accreditation the week before for violating Manila’s ban on third-country deployment, and for refusing to return the money it collected illegally. 

He said when the agency realizes that the work contracts it had submitted for processing at POLO are not moving, it would be easier to get it to refund the worker’s money.
“Kahit pa ayusin niya iyan, isang buwan para siya magtanda. Kasi kung hindi mo gaganunin, hindi magtatanda ang mga iyan eh,” Villafuerte said.

The worker sought Villafuerte’s help when the prospective job fell through because the employer had neglected to file the work contract within the filing period allegedly because he was traveling abroad.
By then, the Filipina had already paid the $46,000 placement fee, Villafuerte said. -Vir B. Lumicao
