Less than a week after President Rodrigo Duterte signed the executive order against illegal labor contracting or ‘contractualisation’, the country’s Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) has said it will release a list of companies engaged in the illegal practice. The list will be released on May 26, according to Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello, on the orders of Duterte. Bello said Duterte has directed the Labor department to submit to him within 30 days the list of companies and business establishments violating the rule against illegal contractualisation. Labor-only contracting is already prohibited under the Labor Code and DOLE Order 174. Senator Joel Villanueva, chairman of the Senate Committee on Labor confirmed that stiffer penalties await errant employers under a bill up for plenary deliberation and approval by Congress outlawing the end-of-contract scheme.
