Business groups urge veto of Security of Tenure bill
MANILA, Philippines-A broad coalition of business groups yesterday urged President Duterte to veto the Security of Tenure (SOT) bill and instead modernize labor regulations to suit the needs of labor intensive industries. In a joint statement, the groups argued anew that the bill is already made redundant by existing laws that protect workers from illegal contractualization. It also goes against the constitutional rights of businesses to contract labor as part of their management prerogative, they said.

RA 11032 amends the Anti Red Tape Act of 2007. The law, which aims to make government transactions faster, is expected to be fully implemented within the next 2 years with the signing of the IRR, ARTA Deputy Director General Ernesto Perez said during the ceremony.

Free govt documents for first time job seekers to cost P3B in lost revenue
THE DEPARTMENT of Labor and Employment (DoLE) said the government stands to lose P3 billion in revenue due to a new law that waives fees for official documents needed by first time job seekers, but added that it views such lost revenue as an investment in ensuring that talented people have equal access to the workforce. On Thursday, DoLE signed the Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) of Republic Act No. 11261 or The First Time Job Seekers Act. The law exempts first time job seekers from paying for government documents and clearances typically required by employers. President Rodrigo R. Duterte signed the legislation last April 10. DoLE estimates that 1.3 million first time job seekers will benefit from the law each year.

The labor department has reiterated its openness to the proposed bill requiring the grant of 14th month pay to employees in the private sector. Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III on Tuesday said that DOLE has to study the proposed bill to consider the interest of the labor and management, as well as its impact to the countrys economic stability. We support anything that benefits our workers and their families. However, we must ensure that the proposal will not cause imbalance between the needs of labor and the capability of employers. We must study it very well, Bello said.

Employers sound alarm on automation for skills upgrading
EMPLOYERS said it is an urgent matter for companies to invest in upskilling employees, noting that low skill and medium skill professions are at risk from automation. In an interview with BusinessWorld, Employers Confederation of the Philippines (ECoP) Director General Jose Roland A. Moya said establishments should take the initiative to reskill and upskill their workers, which are helpful to the workers as they keep afloat amid digitization risks in the work force. A work force trained for the future will also be key in meeting company objectives. There is a need for employers to invest in life long learning… and enterprise based training… It is a good investment because skills development is the core of any development efforts of the company, he said.
