Thursday, 09 August 2007

Contemporary Philippine artworks got a major boost in Singapore this month when two high-end glossy magazines, "The Peak" and "Prestige," featured them in several pages of their August issues.

The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) said "The Peak" devoted six pages to the recently-held Philippine Art Trek in feature story entitled "Pinoy Art Goes Mainstream," and two picture gallery features entitled “Art Trek" and “Bridging the Arts."

Its s feature story also has special interviews with two participating artists in the month-long Philippine Art Trek – main draw artist Manuel D. Baldemor, whose Singapore debut was the show “Windows", and printmaker Virgilio “Pandy" Aviado, who joined the group show “Contemporary Print Philippines" at Momentous Arts Gallery.

US state lawmakers step into void on immigration law
Wednesday, 08 August 2007

OSTON - State lawmakers are increasingly stepping into the void created by the failure of Congress to approve sweeping changes to immigration policy, a new report finds.

 

Legislatures have passed bills dealing with a range of immigration issues, from employment and health care to driver's licenses and human trafficking — creating a sometimes uneven patchwork quilt of immigration law across the country.

 

Arkansas approved a law barring state agencies from contracting with businesses that recruit illegal immigrants. Louisiana has a new law barring the state from issuing driver's licenses to foreigners until their criminal background has been checked. Oregon made it illegal for anyone other than lawyers to perform immigration consultation work.

 

In the first six months of the year, 171 immigration bills became law in 41 states. That's more than double the 84 laws approved in all of 2006, according to the report by the National Conference of State Legislatures, being released Monday at the group's annual meeting in Boston.

Warning against fake jobs in China
Wednesday, 01 August 2007

According to a DFA report, a number of Filipinos are in legal trouble in China for illegal work or overstaying. Most of the cases of  contract breaches and illegal recruitment involve unauthorized schools and fly-by-night recruitment agencies.

 

The booming Chinese economy has created a big demand for teachers and domestic helpers. Recruiters lure Filipinos with high-paying jobs but many victims end up underpaid, jobless or jailed.   

 

While China needs English teachers, not all schools are authorized by the Chinese government to recruit foreigners. China has no job openings for foreign housekeepers, nannies or other categories of domestic help. 

 

Recruiters use the internet or telephone to lure Filipino workers. Most of the visas of the victims turned out to be fake.

No hiring of nurses for Norway
Wednesday, 01 August 2007
The Philippine Overseas Employment Administration warns Filipino nurses not to fall prey to promises of nursing jobs in Norway by some unscrupulous recruiters.

The Philippine Embassy in Stockholm, Sweden reported that there is no present demand for professional nurses, foreign or local, in Norway.

Professional Management AS, a company registered in Oslo, Norway tried to secure accreditation with Reliable Recruitment Corporation, a Philippine-licensed agency,  for the supposed recruitment and supply of  Filipino nurses. The POEA subsequently denied the request for accreditation upon receiving the embassy report. Director Per Haugum of the Norwegian Registration Authority for Health Personnel, in his reply to the Philippine embassy’s request for verification, said he was not aware of any demand for nurses in Norway.
 
Korea trainee system abolished, OFWs should avoid overstaying
Wednesday, 01 August 2007
Korea has abolished the Alien Industrial Trainee System and stopped issuing trainee visas effective January 1, 2007. Dr. Yong-Dal Kim, President of Human Resources Development Service of Korea (HRD Korea) said Philippine licensed agencies formerly hiring trainees for Korea can no longer recruit workers under the trainee scheme.

Korean employers could only get foreign workforce legally through the  Employment Permit System (EPS) with the participation of other sending countries which include Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Mongolia, Cambodia, Uzbekistan, Pakistan and the Philippines.

Private recruitment agencies are not authorized to participate in implementation of the EPS and he asked the cooperation of the POEA to maintain such system. The POEA is the only government organization authorized to implement the EPS in the country.

Filipinos working as industrial trainees in Korea are advised to come back to the Philippines upon expiration of their contract and re-apply under the Employment Permit System (EPS) instead of going illegal.


According Dr. Yong-Dal Kim, a huge number of overstaying workers will affect the labor quota that will be given to the Philippines under the Employment Permit System.

Former trainees who wish to continue working legally in Korea can register with the POEA. They should pass the Korean Language Test (KLT) and the medical requirements for inclusion in the Roster of Jobseekers to have another chance to be recruitd by Korean employers. Former trainees should, however, wait for at least six months before they could go back to work in Korea. Employers will face stiff penalty for employing illegal foreign workers in Kore
 
Beware of fraudulent UK job offers in the internet
Wednesday, 01 August 2007
Filipinos applying for work in the United Kingdom should take extreme caution in dealing with internet job offers in light of recent surge in fraudulent recruitment schemes.

The Labor Office of the Philippine Embassy in London has issued this warning in response to several email requests from Filipino applicants asking for assistance in verifying the authenticity of job offers in the UK.

Filipino applicants must therefore be alert on the modus operandi of these unscrupulous operators, such as the use of fake scanned recruitment documents bearing the name and logo of employers in the UK. In most cases, applicants are being led to believe that they have been accepted for some positions and directed to send money to travel or remittance agencies acting as middle agents.

Text scam targets Pinoys w/ 'roaming' UAE phones
Tuesday, 24 July 2007
Filipinos in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) are targets of a text-based lottery scam, Philippine officials there warned Monday.

UAE newspaper Khaleej Times reported that the scam particularly targets members of the Filipino community with Philippine-based roaming mobile phone numbers.

Consul Vicente Vicencio Bandillo said the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) in Manila has already looked into this case and had released a memorandum to all Philippine missions worldwide.

He said that so far, no Filipino from the UAE has fallen for the trap,but nevertheless warned Filipinos to remain cautious about electronic messages that sound "too good to be true."

"We have been duly warned by the DFA that the company GMA-CF, which claims to be the organizer of this electronic raffle draw, is not registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in Manila. The text message is therefore considered a hoax," Bandillo said.

The text message informs the prospective victim of an alleged $40,000 (Dh146,000) cash prize as part of President Arroyo's "Pangkabuhayan 2007 Para sa Kababayang Overseas Filipino Workers" livelihood program.

High recruitment costs to Spain turn off Filipino jobseekers
Tuesday, 17 July 2007
Spain’s strict immigration requirements discourage jobseekers for overseas employment from exploring employment opportunities there, according to a recruitment agency official. Spain requires job applicants to be proficient in its language, a skill that can be acquired by enrolling in institutions like Instituto de Cervantes but at a high cost, said Victor Fernandez, president of the Philippine Association of Service Exporters, Inc.

Filipino caregivers, in particular, find the high cost of recruitment fees, language proficiency lessons and other expenses needed before they could qualify for a job in the former Philippine colonizer, Fernandez said. He said a Spanish language proficiency course would cost P18,000. In addition, job applicants are charged an equivalent of one month salary for placement fee for local recruiters.
