Business process outsourcing (BPO) firms in the Philippines should comply with the new order allowing workers regular five-minute breaks every two hours of sitting time. Labor group Associated Labor Unions-Trade Union Congress of the Philippines (ALU-TUCP) urged the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) to effectively disseminate information on the new standing break order for workers. Department Order No. 184 seeks to help reduce job-related stress on employees. It covers workers involved in computer, administrative, and clerical works; information technology and business process management, and all other processes and industries where sedentary work is observed.
