A Filipina has been awarded more than $19,000 compensation from a Hong Kong woman who pretended to be the employer who hired her four months ago, then tried to send her to China to work for another person.

The compensation order was made by Labor Attache Jalilo dela Torre who met with the worker and the fake employer on Nov. 19

During the meeting, Dela Torre said he discovered that the domestic worker’s contract did not bear the name of the poseur and that the address given was different from where she was taken to work.  

Also, the chop on her contract was that of a sub-agent, and not by her Hong Kong employment agency.

Dela Torre said he told the local woman that what she was trying to do was in breach of Immigration rules.

He ordered the woman to pay the Filipina three months salary, or $13,320; plus a full refund of the Php40,000 ($5,960) that she paid her agency in the Philippines for training and other charges.

The woman reportedly agreed to do as she was told immediately.

According to the worker, she broke her contract after learning that she was to be sent to China to work.

She was reportedly told by the local woman that her “real employer” had already secured a China visitor visa for her, so she would be taken there to work.

The helper, a first-timer in Hong Kong, is using her 14-day visa extension to look for a new employer.
