„The government really should protect workers because they don`t have bargaining power,“ she said. „They leave it to the government to make sure employers are looking for the best for them.“ By law, a private sector employer can offer its employees a telework program on a voluntary basis. But they have an obligation to give teleworkers the same rights, protection and compensation as their colleagues who physically go to the office. Last year, President Duterte signed Executive Order No. 51, which prohibits illegal employment contracts but authorizes certain forms of contract work. The end of the endo was a presidential campaign promise. In cases where workers have unionized, employers may view this practice as a positive practice. Employers may view union training as a way to properly listen to the collective voice of workers and treat it as an invaluable partner for the success of the company. For ordinary workers, regularization involves more benefits, such as the payment of leave incentive services, separation benefits, superannuation and more rights, such as staying unionized and employed, unless they are dismissed for specific reasons under the labour code. The law requires companies to inform workers of the nature of their work, including workplace hazards, recognize the right of their workers not to perform precarious duties, and provide workers with personal protective equipment and equipment. Workers` groups are divided on this new bill. Some people think it`s a step in the right direction, although a small step.

Others, such as Philippine Trade Union Congress (TUCP) spokesman Alan Tanjusay, have „serious reservations and concerns about the law.“ Because of these abusive labour relations and exploitation, the country`s labour groups insist that all forms of contract work be totally prohibited by direct hiring as a fundamental principle of employment. The endo is a colloquial term that is characterized by the reduction of the notion of „end of contract.“ Here in our country, employers are required to regulate workers after six (6) months of work for the company, so that some companies try to play the system by hiring workers for up to five (5) months. In a statement issued in response to their listing, the company stated that the workers concerned are not employees of the company, but are employed by an anonymous service provider: on June 2, 2018, PLDT began the process of regularizing its staff. [11] They continued to call on DOLE for its decision to close all contract agencies, as this would „effectively close these companies and supplant not only the workers employed by PLDT, but also thousands of other workers assigned to other contractors.“ [12] For the sector, they may have no qualms about the simple and logical explanation of the seasonality of certain work requirements.
