HOW CAN WE HELP YOU?
Back in December 2016, the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) expressed their desire to abolish the practice of contracting and sub-contracting, better known as “Endo.” The “Endo” practice has been strongly opposed by President Rodrigo Duterte, whose 2016 campaign promise to prohibit “Endo” remains to be seen.
The Department of Labor and Employment’s (DOLE) DO 174 was a massive disappointment for workers who were seeking an end to contractualization, or what’s commonly known as “Endo.” While “Endo” practice, which has been around for decades, is not written into the outdated Labor Code, it’s a widely accepted practice that places workers in situations where their rights and benefits aren’t protected by the law.
Tax Reform is high on the Duterte Administration’s agenda. In a near unanimous majority, and after the consolidation of 55 separate bills, House Bill 5636, or the Tax Reform for Acceleration and Inclusion or “TRAIN” was approved by Congress on May 15. House Bill 5636 is not the law, yet.
