The Labor Department has laid down the guidelines for the implementation of the newly signed law on free documents for first-time job applicants.

Republic Act No. 11261 o First-Time Jobseekers Assistance Act states that government agencies should not charge first-time jobseekers.

DOLE said that the law will take effect in August and job applicants can save P1,500 to  P2,500. 

The list of documents that can be obtained for free are:

Barangay clearance/ certificate
National Bureau of Investigation clearance
Police clearance
Medical clearance
Transcript of records
Tax identification number
National certificate
Other government-issued documents

“The measure will definitely lessen the financial burden on first-time job seekers in obtaining their pre-employment documentary requirements, and gain decent employment within a shorter period of time,” Bello said during the signing of RA 11261 in Manila. 

At least 1.3 million job applicants can benefit from this new law, and at least Php3 billion pesos will be shouldered by the government. 

The  jobseeker can get a certification from his/her barangay certifying that he is a first-time job seeker. The free documents can only be availed once.
