Beware of Illegal Recruiters

Date Posted: Mar 10, 2009

Unemployment is one of the major problems faced by our country today, because of the global recession felt around the globe. Thousands of college graduates will soon join the millions of jobseekers that are up to grab a job. With these, the authorities are reminding everyone to beware of illegal recruiters.


How would you know if the company is into illegal transactions? Here’s how:


  • When the agency/company is asking for money or fee.
  • Employing jobs that are harmful and can wreck the dignity of the applicant and the Republic of the Philippines.
  • When the company/agency failed to reimburse the money that the applicant/employee incurred for his employment (deployment for overseas work)
  • Failure to employ workers without valid reasons.
  • Giving false testimony, documents, information, and other words oral and written to applicants.
  • Issuing fake license.
  • Attempt already employed employee to quit his/her job to offer another job.
  • Attempting to cancel business inspection from the Secretary of Labor and Employment.
  • Influencing company not to hire an applicant that is not a member of the agency.
  • Substituting or altering to the prejudice of the worker, employment contracts approved and verified by the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) from the time of actual signing thereof by the parties up to and including the period of the expiration of the same without the approval of the DOLE.


Before getting into transaction to agencies, beforehand, check whether the agency or the company is legal. Do not give your trust in an instant especially if they are asking big amount of money or if they issue a contract that entails suspicious details.


You can easily contact Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) if you have encountered illegal recruiters, you can call them at (632) 527-8000.
