DOLE seeks exemption of med
workers from deployment ban
The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) and the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration have recommended to the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases to exempt medical workers, who have completed their overseas requirements as of Aug. 31, from the existing deployment ban on health workers.
DOLE Secretary Silvestre Bello III said the recommendation extends the previous cut-off date of March 8, permitting medical workers to report to their jobs abroad.
He added that the proposal was submitted in connection with the appeal of nurses and medical workers.
