How to Handle DOLE Assessment Visits


Now in his third year as the President, Rodrigo Roa Duterte’s administration remains steadfast in its commitment to end illegal contractualization. We will always remember the day when Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello vowed to eliminate, if not substantially reduce, the incidence of “endo”, as well as to wipe out “labor-only contracting” arrangements. In doing so, DOLE has released Department Order (D.O.) No. 183, replacing D.O. No. 131-B, providing for the Revised Rules on the Administration and Enforcement of Labor Laws Pursuant to Article 128 of the Labor Code. This seminar helps business owners and HR personnel on how to deal with labor law compliance inspections prior to, during, and after DOLE visits. Are you ready when a Labor Law Compliance Officer visits your company? What are the documents that you should produce? What are the "DOs" and "DON’Ts" while the inspections are ongoing? What to expect and how to act? These are some of the questions that the seminar shall answer.
