A Filipino domestic worker has applied to put her employer on a watchlist overseen by the Philippine Overseas Labor Office (POLO) in Hong Kong after she was allegedly abused by her employer’s elderly mother.
Marlyn, who works as a maid in Tsing Yi, said the woman beat her and poured boiling water on her hands, sunwebhk.com reported.
She said her employer did not do anything to stop his mother. She went to her employment agency to complain but the agency passed on the complaint to the old woman, who only became more violent against Marlyn.
The maid said she would just endure taking care of the old woman as she needed the job to support her two children back in the Philippines. However, a compatriot persuaded her to file a complaint to POLO.
POLO’s watchlist bars employers from hiring Filipino domestic workers.
In March last year, the Philippine and Indonesian consulates in Hong Kong started sharing their blacklists of employers who have records of abusing their domestic workers.
According to some media reports, employers who are on such a blacklist are barred from hiring new maids unless they visit the relevant consulate in person and explain their situations.
As of June 2017, POLO recorded that 5,791 prospective employers had their applications rejected for hiring Filipino domestic workers.
Dapat lang blacklisted maski my personal appearance ang amo wag ng bigyan ng helper maawa kayo sa mga kbbayan natin..
Dapat lang para alam nila kung paano ang walang katulong,para sila mismo ang gagawa ng trabaho ng bahay at kung paano mag alaga ng anak nila

Nice move for the Indonesia and Philippines consulates to share the list of abusive employers. This is a milestone in the pursuit to bring FDH to a good and safe workplace.
why just put in blacklist why don’t they file a complain to the police
You did the right thing kabayan. Abusive employers must be reported so that the consulate will be notify what is going on and act accordingly to help.
Ung relatives nila or friends kukuha para sa kanila
