4 OFWs File Complaint Against Abusive Employer in Kuwait
Four OFWs filed a complaint against their Kuwaiti employer over alleged physical and verbal abuse.
On Thursday (June 4, 2020), it has been reported that four Overseas Filipino Workers in Kuwait accused their employer of abusing them. At first, the Pinoy migrant workers allegedly suffered verbal abuse from their employer.
Eventually, the heartless employer started to abuse the four male workers physically. The Pinoy workers were forced to flee and temporarily reside at their friend’s home to avoid the cruelty of their employer.
The Philippine officials on Kuwait are already discussing on how to help the migrant workers. The embassy is also planning to repatriate the Filipinos after suffering verbal and physical abuse for almost a year.
In January 2020, the Philippine government suspends the deployment of OFWs to Kuwait following the death of a Pinay worker. The deployment ban has been lifted in February 2020.
The bilateral relation of the Philippines and Kuwait has been ruined after Kuwaiti employers accidentally killed Joanna Demafelis in 2018 and Constancia Lago in 2019.
