DOLE 2 to workers: report Labor Law violators in our office

TUGUEGARAO CITY, Cagayan --- Following the misleading report regarding complaint of workers from a certain shopping center in Tuguegarao City, Cagayan, the Department of Labor and Employment – Regional Office No. 2 (DOLE2) warns workers to report Labor Law violators only to the said office or its attached agencies.

Issues fired up just recently after DOLE 2 was accused of letting off the hook employers who violate Labor Laws and standards. It was said that some DOLE employees may have been covering up these violators and tolerating their misdoings.

DOLE 2 Regional Director Atty. Sarah Buena S. Mirasol rebuts claiming that the department is doing everything to protect the labor force.

“Kami po ay walang kinikilingan at pinoprotektahang kahit na sinong may pagkakasala sa batas. We always look after the welfare of our workers and we see to it that all complaints are being attended to,” Atty. Mirasol said.

She also stressed that workers should not be afraid to file a complaint against their employers and that they should cooperate during inspections and interviews conducted by Labor Inspectors.

“Hindi po namin magagawa nang lubusan ang aming trabaho kung hindi po kayo makikipagtulungan sa amin. Kayo po ang makakapagsabi ng mga paglabag ng inyong employer at hindi ninyo kailangang matakot because we will protect you at all cost,” the Lawyer Director added.

Atty. Mirasol also urged workers to report Labor Inspectors who try to cover up misdoings of their employers.

“Bukas din po ang aming tanggapan maging sa mga reklamo kaugnay sa aming mga empleyadong kasangkot sa mga paglabag na ito. The department prohibits those acts and we will act accordingly on those matters,” Atty. Mirasol said.

DOLE’s Labor Inspection Program and Conciliation – Mediation are some of the prime programs of the department that promote industrial peace and welfare of workers. Any aggrieved worker, union, or group of workers may file a Request for Assistance (RFA) in the regional office or in the nearest field office in their province. (END/JVP/RBE)
