Filipino rep raises concerns over needless ban

| 06/11/2011

(CNS Business): Cayman’s unofficial Philippines consul, Arturo Ursua, says Cayman’s labour laws are already sufficient to address existing requirements in the Philippines relating to migrant workers and it should not be on the ban list. The locally based Filipino representative also said that, as a UK overseas territory, Cayman is obligated by the same treaties as Britain, which is not on the banned list. Following last week’s announcement by officials in the Philippines that it would no longer deploy workers to a list of 41 countries, including the Cayman Islands, Ursua said he was concerned about workers who were in the Philippines on vacation from local jobs and may not be able to come back.  Go to CNS Business for full story and to comment
