Filipinos in Jordan often have to go through a process of contract verification. This is to ensure that they are working under the correct visa and status. The process can be tedious, but it is necessary for both the employee and the employer. Here we will discuss the steps involved in contract verification, as well as some tips to make the process go smoothly.

Prior to granting an OEC to an OFW, the POEA requires that the employment contract be verified. Contract verification is the process used by the Labor Attaché to make sure that the employment rights, benefits, and welfare of Filipino migrant workers are properly protected and respected at the worksite/place of employment.

The Labor Attaché will make sure that the OFWs’ work contracts adhere to the current employment laws, regulations, and practices in both the Philippines and the host nation. They will also make sure that the POEA-mandated documentation requirements for overseas employment are met.
