DOLE discovers fake certificates of involuntary separation
The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) has warned the public against the use of unofficial and counterfeit Certificates of Involuntary Separation, according to a report by Philippine News Agency.
The DOLE-Bureau of Local Employment (BLE) issued the warning after receiving reports of fake certifications for the Social Security System (SSS) unemployment benefit claim.
The said document appeared to have been issued by DOLE Regional Offices and bearing the letterhead and electronic signatures of concerned officials.
Any person or entity found conducting illegal reproduction of the said document shall be dealt with the full extent of law, the DOLE said.
At the same time, the labor department said SSS members may file for certification directly at the DOLE Regional Office having jurisdiction over their workplace, free of charge.
For interested applicants, they may visit the appropriate DOLE Regional Office's website for instructions on the process.
Meanwhile, the DOLE and SSS are set to sign a joint memorandum circular to establish guidelines on the enhanced online filing of SSS unemployment benefit claims.
The application for claims should be filed through the SSS website including the application for Electronic Certification of Involuntary Separation from DOLE.
