The Process of Hiring Workers from the Philippines
-The flowchart below shows the standard procedure of worker recruitment from the Philippines. Unethical recruitment practices, however, occur during this process. A worker can be charged placement fees after completing all required documents and skill testing or at any point before departure.
-Before jobs are offered to foreigners, NZ employers are required to make genuine attempts to recruit New Zealanders first by conducting a 'labour market test'.
