Individual Contract Verification in MWO Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

A verified Employment Contract is an essential document for Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) who are vacationing in the Philippines. It’s mandatory for OFWs who wish to obtain their Overseas Employment Certificate (OEC), an exit clearance for Filipinos who want to work abroad. Without it, OFWs cannot leave the country for overseas employment. That said, we’ve created an in-depth guide on the application process for Individual Contract Verification in MWO Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Aside from being a requirement for OEC application in Malaysia, a verified Employment Contract is a way for the Labor Attaché to confirm OFWs’ contracts comply with the prevailing laws, standards, and practices in the Philippines and the host country. This process also helps protect OFWs’ employment rights, benefits, and welfare. Thus, OFWs should process their Individual Contract Verification at the Migrant Workers Office (MWO) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, before returning to the Philippines for vacation.
