THE Depart­ment of La­bor and Em­ploy­ment (Dole) warned the public, es­pe­cially qual­i­fied worker-ben­e­fi­cia­ries, against the mo­dus of some un­scrupu­lous groups and in­di­vid­u­als who are falsely us­ing the agency’s liveli­hood and emer­gency em­ploy­ment pro­gram.

In a state­ment, Dole Sec­re­tary Sil­vestre Bello III said some in­di­vid­u­als and groups are ask­ing for money, so res­i­dents can avail them­selves of the Dole In­te­grated Liveli­hood and Emer­gency Pro­gram (Dileep).

“Please be ad­vised that the Dole does not au­tho­rize any in­di­vid­ual or group to col­lect or so­licit money to avail of said Dileep as­sis­tance,” said Bello.

“There are no mem­ber­ship and trans­ac­tion fees in fa­cil­i­tat­ing the pro­cess­ing of pre and post project im­ple­men­ta­tion doc­u­ments un­der the said added.

Bello ad­vised the public not to deal with such in­di­vid­u­als.

“We strongly con­demn such prac­tice, and rec­om­mend that the public not to re­spond to such so­lic­i­ta­tions,” Bello said.

He also urged those ap­proached by un­scrupu­lous in­di­vid­u­als to re­port to the Dole such at­tempts.

“We urge the public to re­port any fraud­u­lent in­ci­dents

pro­gram,”

he or any in­for­ma­tion on the un­scrupu­lous in­di­vid­ual or groups to the near­est Dole re­gional, pro­vin­cial or field of­fice,” said Bello.

To note, Dileep is a pro­gram that pro­vides ad­di­tional in­come and al­ter­na­tive em­ploy­ment to the poor, vul­ner­a­ble, and marginal­ized work­ers.

It is be­ing su­per­vised by the Dole-Bureau of Work­ers with Spe­cial Con­cerns.
