As per Arabtimes, 21 Filipino nurses fly to home, The 21 Filipino nurses who left their job at a homecare company last month and sought the help of the Philippine Overseas Labour Office (POLO)

to file a complaint against their company for contract substitution finally flew back to the Philippines on Monday afternoon on board Philippine Airlines PR 669. Many of them are registered nurses but when they arrived in Kuwait, they were surprised to learn that they will be working as caregivers and not as nurses.

The group complained that the company allegedly did not pay them the right salary as stated in the contract. The nurses were supposed to receive KD 250 but they were only getting KD 150 while others KD 135 with some unexplained deductions.

Meanwhile, Chavez urged all Filipinos who are planning to work in Kuwait to check on the contract and make sure that everything is transparent with the employer before they accept the job offer. “We have already suspended the homecare company and recommended it for blacklisting. We hope that the group of workers will push their case against the company and the manpower agencies in Manila,” pointed out Chavez
