Aside from fake news, there were also fake (DOLE) Labor Inspectors.
I saw this article from Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) website posted last August 2, 2017. This is very relevant to all employers or corporations who are trying very hard to comply with government requirements, who one day might also be a victim of this fake inspector’s fraudulent misrepresentation.
Based on this article, DOLE received a call from Ben-Ben Trading/Classic Particles Manufacturing Ltd. Co. – a company from Meycauayan, Bulacan – to verify the inspector’s identity and employment with DOLE. The company said that the fake officer asked for money and in return, the inspector will no longer subject the company to inspection. The inspector presented fake ID, documents and signed Notice of Assessment to the company.
If you have encountered a situation similar to this or feels like you need confirmation from DOLE about the authority of the person checking your organization, you may call DOLE Central Luzon hotline number 0925-8150214 (mobile) and (045) 455-1619 (landline) or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
DOLE took action and filed a case against the fake inspector.
