Filipino Household Service Workers / Recruiter stop hiring in HK putting 35,000 jobs at risk

A self-imposed moratorium by a group of Philippine-based licensed recruiters might deprive some 35,000 Filipinos of jobs as household service workers (HSWs) in Hong Kong.

The Society of Hong Kong Accredited Recruiters of the Philippines Inc. (SHARP), an association of Philippine-licensed overseas employment providers, earlier announced that it will stop deploying HSWs for employers in the former British colony, citing prohibitive recruitment costs that workers incur.

Alfredo Palmiery, president of SHARP, said that until such time that their counterparts and their employers in Hong Kong have satisfactorily addressed the issue of high recruitment costs, the moratorium they imposed would remain.

In 2011, over 130,000 new hires and rehires were deployed by private recruitment agencies to Hong Kong. Some 40,000 of these new hires were processed by members of SHARP, said Palmiery.
