POEA head Hans Leo Cacdac said the penalized agencies passed fake Comprehensive Pre-Departure Education Program Certificates of Attendance (CPDEP-COA).
Canceled were the licenses of:
– Jardy International Promotion Agency
– Mi Amore International Services Inc.
– Greenback International Manpower Services
With this, the officers and directors of the three firms at the time of the commission of the offense are disqualified from recruitment and placement of overseas Filipino workers.
Suspended were the licenses of:
– Beracah Human Resources Consultancy
– Global Medical Systems Inc.
– Cinderella International Manpower Services Corp.
The POEA noted a license is canceled if a recruitment agency committed misrepresentation for the third time.
“We consistently ruled that misrepresentation is incurred when a licensed recruitment agency furnished or published false notice, information or document in relation to recruitment and placement of overseas Filipino workers,” Cacdac said.
Earlier, Cacdac reminded recruitment agencies they are expected to ensure the authenticity and validity of documents submitted to the POEA.
As such, he said they are liable for any irregularity in its issuance.
