A viral video has caught the attention of authorities prompting them to conduct an investigation over alleged maltreatment of Asian maid.
In the video, a woman commanded the domestic helper to close the door so her children can hit their target.
Later on, the maid was seen crying as children throw shoes towards her direction.
The video garnered criticism towards the rude behavior of the woman and the kids. An investigation is underway for possible criminal cases which will be filed against the employer.
Just recently, President Rodrigo Duterte has put a stop in the deployment of OFWs to Kuwait, particularly because of the rising number of cases of maltreated OFWs that even results to suicide. The ban flagged numerous reactions, some saying that skilled workers must get exempted by the deployment ban.
“Many skilled workers who have been selected by companies in Kuwait will be most severely affected by the present suspension,” as mentioned in the statement of the Philippine Licensed Agencies Accredited To Kuwait (Philaak).
“These skilled workers are IT [information-technology] professionals, store managers, maintenance personnel, electricians, plumbers, carpenters have been issued visas and are just awaiting their plane tickets from their employers,” it added.
