PIA Press Release

89 Ilocos SMEs attend orientation on labor laws, regulation

By Freddie G. Lazaro

Vigan City (7 October) -- At least 89 small and micro enterprises (SMEs) from La Union and the 5th and 6th districts of Pangasinan province had finished the series of appreciation courses on Training and Advisory Visit (TAV) conducted by the Region's 1 Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE).

DOLE 1 Director Henry John Jalbuena said, the training was organized in consonance with Labor Secretary Rosalinda Dimapilis-Baldoz's strategy of strengthening social dialogue with DOLE's tripartite partners pursuant to the 22-point labor and employment agenda of President Benigno S. Aquino III.

"The course is one of the ways to foster stronger cooperation and develop mutual and voluntary compliance among employers, workers and the government regarding labor laws," Jalbuena said.

He said the initial batch of the participants in the said course was organized by the DOLE's field offices in La Union and Rosales.

"More similar activities are lined up for the other provinces and districts of the region," he said.

The DOLE implements the TAV which refers to the conduct of orientation seminars and authorized advisory/assistance and follow-up visits by trained DOLE personnel/inspectors to SMEs with an employment size of nine workers or less.

It aims to assist SMEs in mapping out a development program geared towards increasing productivity and facilitating eventual compliance with labor standards.

After the seminar, the DOLE Field Offices shall undertake follow-up visits of the enterprises to monitor progress. The TAV team shall document the status of improvements made by the enterprises as their commitment to voluntary compliance with labor laws, social welfare benefits, and occupational safety and health standards.

He said the representatives of these (SMEs) establishments are committed to voluntarily comply on mandatory standards on wages and non-wage benefits; social welfare benefits; occupational safety and health; work productivity improvement; and the law on the employment of minors.

"These establishments can save themselves the rigors and expenses of case hearings arising from labor violations by practicing self-regulation and voluntarism," Jalbuena said. (PIA Ilocos Sur) [top]
