Carpo Law & Associates provides legal services to individuals and corporations in need of legal assistance and representation on labor-related disputes. We offer a wide range of services in various areas of labor law practice, from settlement proceedings and litigation to labor compliance.

Our labor lawyers have represented startups, scale-ups, and multinational companies before regular courts and quasi-judicial bodies in the Philippines, such as the National Labor Relations Commission (NLRC), Court of Appeals, and the Supreme Court.

We employ innovative and personalized strategies in handling our clients’ labor cases, with the end in view of maintaining harmonious labor relations and securing compliance with labor standards.  

Our Labor Law Services

Labor Dispute Resolution

We represent clients in Single Entry Approach (SEnA) proceedings of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) to facilitate peaceful settlement of labor disputes and prevent them from escalating into labor litigation cases. Through SEnA, we help our clients arrive at a private, non-confrontational settlement agreement with their opponents without the authority of an arbiter or judge to resolve the dispute and the active involvement of lawyers to represent a party.

Labor Litigation

Where resolution is not possible through SenA, we also provide legal representation before Labor Arbiters, the National Labor Relations Commission (NLRC), Court of Appeals, and the Supreme Court on a broad range of labor litigation cases, such as but not limited to:

  • Illegal and constructive dismissals;
  • Unfair labor practices; and
  • Other cases involving violation or non-compliance of labor standards and labor relations.

Labor Compliance

Our labor lawyers also help companies in acquiring a License to Operate as a Private Employment Agency (PEA) from the DOLE.

Additionally, we aid companies in reviewing their eligibility to engage in contractual and sub-contractual recruitment activities under the provisions of Department Order No. 174 (DO-174).
