    teka muna mr DOLE sec, kung repatriation ang problema para saan itong batas na ito??? alam ba ng departamento nyo na meron tayo nito bago ipalabas yang bagong govt policy na yan!
    sorry guys, just want to vent my resentment:rant:


    Republic Act (RA) 8042 (Annex F)
    Republic Act 8042 or known as the "Migrant Workers and Overseas Filipinos Act of 1995" was approved by President Fidel V. Ramos on June 7, 1995. This Act strengthened OWWA's mandate and services for OFWs and their dependents and expanded the composition of the Board of Trustees.

    Under Section 15 of this Act, OWWA, in coordination with appropriate agencies, shall undertake the repatriation of workers in cases of war, epidemics, disasters or calamities, natural or man-made, and other similar events without prejudice to reimbursement by the responsible principal or recruitment agency. However, in cases where the principal or recruitment agency cannot be identified, all costs attendant to repatriation shall be borne by the OWWA. For this purpose, an Emergency Repatriation Fund, initially in the amount of Php100M was created and established under the administration, control and supervision of OWWA.

    Section 17 establishes the Re-placement and Monitoring Center or RPMC for returning Filipino migrant workers wherein the DOLE, OWWA and POEA were tasked to formulate a program that would motivate migrant workers to plan for productive options such as entry into highly technical jobs or undertakings, livelihood and entrepreneurial development, better wage employment, and investment of savings.

    Section 21 establishes a Migrant Workers Loan Guarantee Fund in order to further prevent unscrupulous illegal recruiters and loan sharks from taking advantage of workers seeking employment abroad. OWWA, in coordination with government financial institutions was tasked to develop financing schemes i.e., Pre-departure Loan and Family assistance Loan for ready to leave Filipino overseas workers and their families.

    Section 32 states the additional membership to the OWWA Board of Trustees coming from women sector.

    This early, nabiktima na sis ko dito. She was supposed to work for a medium-sized co. abroad mga mid Feb. Hinahanda na nga ang VISA niya eh. With this though, the employer will likely change their mind -- who in their right mind will deposit 5K for a couple of employees -- even assuming they trust the gov't to return the money??

    .....Kung hindi iabolish ng govt ito, later on ang OFW ang magshoulder ng "ransom money" na ito, salary deduction....ang lupit ng gobyerno ng Pinas!
