IMPACT – HIGH
The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) has provided more information on its new labor market testing rules.
Additional Information: The DOLE-Regional Office (RO) will also run a separate LMT within two days of receiving the AEP application. Their publication will include: name of the foreign national; position, job description and qualification needed; salary range and benefits; employer’s name and address; and a notice that any person in the Philippines who is competent, able and willing to work can file an objection at the DOLE-RO within 30 days of its publication. All AEP required visas will be affected by the new LMT policy.
BAL Analysis: The changes will add to the time it takes to hire foreign nationals in the Philippines in many cases. Employers are encouraged to review the rules and work closely with their immigration provider when recruiting and onboarding foreign nationals.
