Overseas Filipino workers in Hong Kong could lose their jobs as some employers mull on leaving the city state due to continuous protests and unrest, reports said.

Protests in Hong Kong have been raging on for over 20 weeks and some of the have demonstrations turned violent.

A community leader of the United Filipinos sa Hong Kong (UFHK) said they have received reports that up to four employers have already left Hong Kong and told their Filipino employees they will no longer need their services.

UFHK Secretary General Emmanuel Villanueva said the employers were from European countries.

The employers were reportedly told to go back to their respective countries because of the ongoing massive protests.

There are about 230,000 employees in Hong Kong; most of them household domestic workers.

Early this week, the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) clarified that there is no order for an employment ban or mandatory repatriation for OFWs in Hong Kong.

Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III issued the clarification due to false social media posts saying that the government has imposed mandatory repatriation for OFWS because of the unrest.

Bello said DOLE has yet to receive an advise from the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) on the alert level that would require a mandatory repatriation. (TN)
