Did you know?
Most household thefts are perpetrated by maids who submit fake employment documents.
Beyond the legal requirements
The law requires maids coming from agencies to produce the following documents as a minimum:
1. NBI (National Bureau of Investigation) clearance
2. Police clearance
3. Barangay clearance
4. Birth certificate (or its equivalent)
These documents are issued by the Philippine government. (Did you say Recto?) To remove any risks of counterfeiting, we require our maids to procure these documents afresh from the government offices. Yes, we still require them even if they already have the docs. We can never be too sure; your safety is on the line.
For the birth certificate, we don’t just require an ordinary one, it needs to be obtained from the National Statistics Office (NSO).
