Pinoy Nurse Escapes after Getting Repeatedly Punched and Scratched by Abusive Employer in Saudi

Many Filipinos go to other countries for a chance of finding a better, higher paying job for their families yet a number end up abused, with some even killed by their abusive employers!

Recently, a male Filipino nurse escaped from his abusive employer in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. In his sworn statement, Ronald Magcawas detailed how he started working at this employer (whose name wasn’t disclosed to the media) in January.

But while he did his job well in caring for the person he is supposed to nurse, his employer found fault in everything he did and even hits him even if he did nothing wrong. Magcawas narrated how his employer would sometimes scratch and punch him, and even spit on his face!

He also had to shave off his head because the heartless employer would pull his hair.

While Magcawas asked help from his agency, his pleas fell on deaf ears as no one from the agency helped him get out of this abusive employer.

So, when he finally had the chance, he ran away and went to the Philippine Overseas Labor Office (POLO) in Riyadh.

According to Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) Undersecretary Dominador Say, Magcawas’ agency will have to answer to the charges if they are proven to have lapses in his case. DOLE will also make sure that Magcawas will be repatriated to the Philippines at the soonest time possible.

Here’s the report on the incident:
