POEA suspends agency collecting placement fees from recruits to Canada

There is a standing POEA Policy that there should be no placement fee for Canada-Bound Overseas Filipino Workers as early as October last year. However, there are still some recruitment agencies charging as much as US$ 8,000.00 for helping applicants get a jobs in Canada.

POEA Administrator Rosalinda Baldoz said JFG Career Agency, the counterpart of September Star Inc in Canada, was cited for default in its contractual obligations to the Filipino workers, and for gross violation of laws, rules and regulations on overseas employment.[Source]
