COURSE OVERVIEW

The recent years saw the Philippines enact several new laws which significantly affect employment relationships and business operations in the country, such as the Safe Spaces Act, Expanded Maternity Leave Act, Telecommuting Act, and the Mental Health in the Workplace Act. These new developments vastly change the landscape of Philippine labor law affording employees with additional levels of protection.

An equally important focal point in Philippine labor law are the developments brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic. The Philippine government was constrained to update its regulations concerning work-from-home and telecommuting arrangements; the national health insurance program; compensation during calamities; and new regulatory compliance for the operation of businesses, including scenarios involving closures and/or mergers or acquisitions. These new regulations are critical, as some of these are being required for Philippine businesses to continue operations in the country.

Apart from new laws and regulations, there had also been changes in existing doctrines and accepted Philippine best business practices. For instance, given the quarantine and mobility restrictions imposed by the Philippine government, there have been emerging trends, queries, and changes in appreciating the commensurability of employee discipline today whenever health or mobility-related issues are involved.

Mastery of these changes in Philippine labor law and business regulatory compliance today is, thus, essential for businesses to adapt and stay ahead of the curve in the Philippine business landscape.

Learn more about these significant changes at the Philippines Employment Law Masterclass on 4 March 2021, and listen to the insights of Attys. Rashel Ann C. Pomoy and Ernesto C. Herrera III of Villaraza & Angangco in collaboration with RHT Academy, who are at the forefront of these legal issues in the Philippines today.
