UAE MIGHT RE-HIRE PHILIPPINES HOUSEKEEPERS AGAIN, IF MAID'S PROTECTION WILL BE GUARANTEED!


There is a chance that UAE will be opening its doors again for kasambahay or household service workers if the talks will pursue and mutually beneficial to both parties, and maid's protection will be guaranteed.

Gulf News reported that:
"The UAE and Philippine labour officials will hold their second round of discussions on the issue of re-sending Filipino maids to the UAE in the first quarter of 2016.


UAE employers have not been able to hire maids directly from the Philippines since June 2014 due to conflicting recruitment rules from the UAE and labour-sending countries like the Philippines.
The issue arose when the Ministry of Interior introduced a unified contract for domestic workers that led to the suspension of various embassies’ role in verifying and attesting contracts, including the Philippines.
But the Philippines insists that based on their domestic laws, they are mandated to verify and record these contracts to protect their workers.


With the suspension of contract verification, no maids could be hired directly from the Philippines legally. This is a problem for many residents since Filipina maids are the preferred house help in the country.
Cruz said the second round of talks is expected to happen in the first quarter of 2016. Once all matters are agreed upon, an agreement is expected to be signed between the two countries in the following months."
