The Philippines Overseas Labor Offices (POLO)


The Republic of the Philippines, through the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE), has created the Philippine Overseas Labor Offices (POLOs) to become the enforcers of its state responsibility abroad for overseas Filipino workers (OFWs):
  • Assist Filipino migrant workers on all problems arising out of employee-employer relationships.
  • Ensure that labor and social welfare laws of the host country are fairly applied to Filipino migrant workers.
  • Verify employment contracts and other employment-related documents.
  • Explore and establish new market niches and conduct aggressive marketing missions.
  • Promote the welfare of Filipino migrant workers through the provision of welfare services such as, but not limited to, repatriation assistance, procurement of medical and hospitalization services, temporary shelter services, and legal assistance.
  • Provide advisory services and program information to promote social integration and empowerment of OFWs through media advocacy, post-arrival orientations, community networking and interaction.
  • Provide training and re-training to enhance the employability and marketability of our migrant workers, and to ensure their eventual and smooth reintegration into the Philippine economy.
  • Formulate and implement gender-sensitivity programs and services, especially in posts with heavy concentration of Filipino women working in vulnerable occupations.
  • Monitor and report to the head office situations and policy developments in the host country that may affect migrant workers in particular and the Philippine labor policies in general
