Seafarers question quitclaims after receiving payment

The employees were hired as seafarers/fishermen by the employers, a group of foreign fishing companies operating at the coastal and offshore area of Cape Verde Islands. Sometime thereafter, fishing operations ceased resulting in the separation of the employees who signed quitclaims in exchange for full settlement amounts, which were higher than those provided under Philippine laws.
