Rensol offers PEOS and E-registration Assistance to workers

Along with the promotion of ethical recruitment and our mandate to an above and beyond service, Rensol launches its own PEOS online and E-registration booth where workers can take it for free with assistance from our recruiters.

PEOS Online and E-registration are the mandatory procedures for all aspiring Overseas Filipino Workers for them to know all the necessary information on the overseas job application, documentary requirements and costs, and a scheme to protect them against illegal recruitment.

All OFWs must accomplish this two as a pre-requisite of the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA). Recruitment agencies can only submit documents of workers who have completed the PEOS online course. This aims to ensure that all deployed workers will be good ambassadors of the Philippines and will not be runaway employees due to culture shock or lack of information.

The same thing goes with e-registration. This is POEA’s online registration facility where aspiring applicants will have their profiles registered in the official database of the agency.

While workers are ideally expected to have it prior to applying to a licensed recruitment agency, Rensol Recruitment noticed that most workers haven’t taken it even before their deployment. A PEOS Certificate should be an additional certificate when applying for a job but many applicants have none of it.

Applicants without internet access may use our facility to take this service for free. By just taking the PEOS online seminar and e-registration, one worker will surely be abroad-ready.

PEOS Compliance

In a span of seven minutes per module, an applicant can finish each video seminar, including the assessment test. Upon completion, the user will receive an email notification of their test result and a certificate of completion.

The first module is about P.R.I.C.E.S.T. which stands for Physical mobility, relationship, income, career movement and direction, expenses, skills, and time. Module 2 is about where one can find employment the legal way. Module 3 tackles the POEA’s campaign against illegal recruitment and teaches users about the schemes employed by recruiters.

Module 4 is about the fees that an OFW needs to pay should he decides to work overseas. Module 5 provides users with details that they need to look into when signing contracts. Module 6 provides information about a particular country, its culture, and customs. Module 7 is about staying healthy and keeping safe in their host country, and Module 8 provides the users with a directory of POEA officials should they need assistance.

How Rensol Saved a Construction Site from a Recruitment Agency Deploying Undocumented Workers: A Case Study

Case Study - Oil Company

Client Problem: Construction Company in Kuwait Found to Employ Filipino Workers with No Pertinent Legal Documents

  • Client lately found that most of his newly-hired foreign construction workers were deployed by former partner agency with no pertinent legal documents.
  • The principal has little idea of the process and the management was afraid of probable legal repercussions of their recruitment.
  • Repatriation of workers will impair their operation on current projects.

Rensol’s Solution: Report the Incident to POEA; Repatriate Illegal Workers; Fast Track Deployment of Legally-Documented Construction Workers

  • Rensol advised to disconnect with their former partner recruitment agency and assisted with the revocation process as the deployment of workers with poor documents is a serious violation of the Revised Rules and Regulations on overseas recruitment imposed by POEA and was already considered as illegal recruitment.
  • Rensol reported the incident to the POEA to assist in the proper legal processes and prior repatriation of undocumented workers.
  • Alongside, Rensol’s facilitated legal processing of the client’s accreditation and recruitment of new batch of workers in the most efficient and legal way possible.

Thousands of Filipino skilled workers returned to the Philippines because of working in a foreign country as illegal, undocumented workers. These poor workers, as well as those foreign companies where they were deployed, were victims of recruitment agencies which happen to illegally deploy workers abroad without following the proper legal processes which include legally-binding accreditation of foreign principal and ethical recruitment of workers.

These recruitment agencies promise faster processes and cheaper cost, yet this enticing offer skips a lot of those legal and crucial processes. These seemingly ‘better’ offer significantly put workers’ safety and client’s reputation at great risk.

Case in Point: Talk About Illegal Recruitment

Upon consulting a lawyer, a construction project manager discovered that their newly-hired bulk of construction workers from the Philippines were undocumented and were illegally recruited to work in Kuwait.

The recruitment agency they formerly partnered with took advantage of their ignorance prior to entering the Philippine market.

Apparently, they dealt with an agency which had promised cheaper and faster process on deployment. It so happened that the company needed urgent hiring for a huge project that is soon to start. They initially turned down other recruitment agencies with a more complicated, lengthy, and costly process for the ‘too-good-to-be-true’ offer of the unlicensed agency.

Hiring illegal workers posed a major legal risk to their company, as per their lawyer. Workers sent to them might also face detention and deportation.

The bulk of undocumented workers is an impairment of the timeline set for their current projects. Their repatriation might affect their ongoing operation. However, keeping undocumented workers may seriously harm their production as well as their reputation as a company.

Rensol To the Rescue

The client contacted Rensol being one of the top established ethical recruitment agency in the Philippines.

It was found that the recruitment agency that the construction company they engaged with was not even licensed by POEA. Rensol assisted in reporting the incident to the government agency. Repatriation of undocumented workers was facilitated by the government to avoid further legal consequences with the existing law in Kuwait.

Rensol, on their part, assisted the construction company to pursue accreditation as a legal foreign employer to overseas Filipino workers and an ethical process of recruitment and documentation of workers. Rensol also promised a ‘quicker than usual’ process yet, abided with the current rules and regulations set by the POEA being an ethical and licensed agency.
