Sorsogon Rep. Ramos pushes for ban of labor contracting

MANILA—Rep. Deogracias B. Ramos, Jr. of the 2nd District of Sorsogon co-authored a bill declaring that all employees are deemed regular after a period of six months from the first day of their employment.

Rep. Deogracias B. Ramos, Jr. 

Under House Bill 5806 co-authored by Rep. Karlo Alexei B. Nograles of Davao City, a probationary employee shall automatically become a regular employee after meeting the standards stipulated in the written contract of probationary employment.

The bill seeks to amend Articles 279, 280 and 281 of Presidential Decree No. 442, otherwise known as the Labor Code of the Philippines.

End-of-contract workers or “endos” refers to short-term and unprotected temporary work arrangements and are bound by a five-month timeframe so that companies will not make them regular employees after six months under the Labor Code.

“The job description and qualification standards of a worker to qualify for regular employment shall be in a written contract and made known by the employer to the employee at the time of his or her engagement,” said Ramos, chairperson of the House Committee on Bicol Recovery and Economic Development.

Under the bill, those under industry-specific work arrangement as may be determined by the Department of Labor and Employment through tripartite approval are also not considered regular employees, unless there is a written contract of employment of not less than six months but not more than one year specifying the rights, terms and conditions of employment not lower than the minimum standards set by laws or regulations.
