Program Overview

The COVID – 19 pandemic has caught everybody by surprise as this once in a lifetimes global health crises have already spread to every continent in our planet, except Antarctica.  At present, cases of the disease are rising daily in some parts of Asia, Africa, America, and Europe. Much more than a health crisis, COVID-19 has already created devastating social, economic, and political crises that is said to leave deep scars to all those affected. To address issues concerning the private sector, disrupted businesses in the Philippines resorted to implement work from home arrangements, pay-cuts, and even retrenchment of employees due to serious business losses. On the other hand, the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) have issued several labor advisories and guidelines for workplace relations during the ongoing pandemic.

Unfortunately, most employers find it hard to draft and personalize their own (new normal) workplace policies to address the control and prevention of the COVID-19. Uncommon business practices such as diminution of benefits and temporary suspension of employees, among others, have been resorted to by some employers as a means to keep and save their employees and businesses. Employers likewise tend to have recourse to work from home arrangement policies without setting out clear and detailed guidelines, leaving the employees confused and unaware of their rights and responsibilities.
