PN 2012-05 (Policy Brief): Protecting Vulnerable OFWs: the Case of Filipino Household Service Workers (HSWs)

The long experience of deploying large numbers of workers has earned accolade for the Philippines as a global model for managing the deployment of workers. In an attempt to improve protection of household service workers (HSWs), the Governing Board of the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) promulgated a series of issuances in 2006 stipulating specific conditions before deployment is allowed. This Policy Brief provides a summary of the reform package, its indicative impacts and implications for policy.
