EMPLEO is an acronym for EMPLoyment, Education and Outreach.
EMPLEO – Pinoy provides informational materials but is most importantly a hotline where both employers and employees can ask questions or have their complaints taken and then handled by the appropriate agencies.
The hotline is staffed by volunteers that can provide language and culturally-sensitive assistance. The hotline is housed and coordinated by the Pilipino Workers Center.
Agencies that are committed to this program include the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the U.S. Department of Labor, the California’s Division of Labor Standards Enforcement, Division of Workers’ Compensation and Division of Occupational Safety and Health.
