POEA Ordered Forced Closure of Two Agencies

Overseas recruitment agencies who fail to follow the rules and regulations in hiring overseas workers face the risk of having their licenses canceled. However, even with cancelled licenses, some recruitment agencies continue to hire applicants for overseas deployment.

Such is the case with Northwest Placement Inc. and Reajent Manpower Services Inc. To make sure that these agencies will not be able to continue their illegal operations, the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) chief, Hans Leo J. Cacdac and Vice-President Jejomar Binay, which is the head of the Presidential Task Force on Anti-Illegal Recruitment (PTFAIR), closed the offices of Northwest Placement Inc. and Reajent Manpower Services Inc.

Cacdac said, “This enforcement effort of the POEA and the Office of the Vice-President underscores the importance of punishing recruitment violators and upholding the rule of law.  And we will not rest.”
The order for immediate closure was issued by POEA after discovering that Northwest Placement Inc. continue to hire housekeepers for the United States of America even after its license was cancelled on April 25, 2012 because of the excessive fees it charged to applicants.

The office of Reajent Manpower Services Inc. was also closed by the POEA because they continue to accept applications for the position of fruit pickers for Australia that was found out to be non-existent.  Reajent was under preventive suspension since February 28, 2012.
