Case on Point: Easing Up the Air in the Construction Site
A physical altercation between a Filipino worker and a local employee resulted to minor injuries to the latter. Being a serious incident, this was quickly addressed by the employer’s administration by sanctioning both parties. The Filipino worker claimed that he was treated unfairly by his co-workers and was only forced to get into a physical quarrel.
After Rensol Recruitment came into knowledge about the confrontation, the agency intervened and helped the client to come up with fair and unbiased decision.
Based on a separate investigation conducted by Rensol, with key eye witnesses from the construction site where one-third of workers were Filipinos, it was found that the deployed employee experienced bullying and discrimination in the workplace. The clash started when a group of local workers staged a prank to make fool of him. The OFW, who has already lost his cool, fought back out of too much embarrassment.
These findings were submitted to the client along with prior recommendation on how to resolve the bigger problem in their construction site, bullying and discrimination. Local workers involved in the prank were suspended as disciplinary action while the Filipino worker was given protection against site’s bullies.
As a Philippine Partner Recruitment Agency which values ethical recruitment at the forefront, Rensol made it possible to positively impact both the employer and the employee in the most non-intrusive way possible. Investigation was conducted in a thorough and swift manner resulting in the confirmation of the worker’s claim to be true and factual.
Rensol made sure that the results were brought to the attention of the employer to assure that there will be no biases in their decisions and to defuse any chance of a legal battle between both parties.
After this incident, both Rensol Recruitment and the employer agreed to have stricter policies in their course of action towards these kinds of events, where the client agreed to keep a closer eye on their expats if they’re being treated unfairly by their co-workers.
