POEA Administrator Bernard Olalia announced on Wednesday that 10 recruitment agencies have been affected due to their licenses’ cancellation.


“The POEA has finally resolved pending cases and we have here an initial list of private recruitment agencies found guilty of recruitment violations with their corresponding penalties,” Olalia said during a press briefing.

Aside from this, five personnel of the POEA were charged with “appropriate cases,” as the agency conducted a fact-finding investigation.
