The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) formed a new interagency task force to ensure that all foreigners working in the sector carry valid work permits.

The Philippine Star quoted Bureau of Local Employment director Dominque Tutay saying all POGO-employed foreigners will be checked to see if they have valid Alien Employment Permits (AEP). Tutay said PAGCOR had been “very cooperative” with the probes into its POGO licensees’ operations.

From CalvinAyre.com:

Philippine law prohibits foreign-owned or -sponsored business projects from hiring more than 20% of their total workforce from overseas, and foreign nationals can only be hired for jobs that local workers either can’t or won’t do.

Most Philippines-based online gambling operators are predominantly China-facing and thus require staff that can speak Mandarin. Tutay suggested that local online gambling licensees should be required to train Filipino workers to conduct business in Mandarin as part of the licensees’ “corporate social responsibility.”
