The BPO company that allegedly violated labor laws by obliging its workers to work in “subhuman conditions” will soon release their side of their story. Wilfredo Sa-a, managing director of Cebu IT-BPM Organization (CIB.O), said the company is currently very concerned with the issue and is discussing it internally.
Last week, a team from the Department of Labor and Employment in Region 7 was sent to verify a report claiming some employees were sleeping on the floor with no proper accommodation.
Sa-a said CIB.O is regularly updating its members on the executive orders issued by Cebu City mayor Edgardo Labella in relation to measures taken by the local government against the Covid-10 coronavirus disease. Some BPO firms are implementing a skeletal workforce to keep their businesses in operation.
