DOLE attends ABC session for the welfare of Kasambahay



CALAPAN CITY, ORIENTAL MINDORO – The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) MIMAROPA through its Oriental Mindoro Field Office attended the session of the Association of Barangay Captains (ABC) of Calapan City held last 11 September 2020 at the legislative building, this City and discussed the salient provisions of the Kasambahay Law .

As one of the top priorities of DOLE MIMAROPA OIC Regional Director Albert E. Gutib, organizing the household workers into an association in MIMAROPA aims to monitor the working conditions of kasambahays and to raise awareness of their rights, privileges and benefits as provided for under Republic Act 10361 otherwise known as the Domestic Workers Act or Batas Kasambahay. This also empowers the kasambahays to represent and participate in the government’s policy making.

Moreover, the registration of domestic workers in the kasambahay desk of every barangay opens the opportunity for the kasambahays to access government programs and services including the DOLE’s livelihood assistance, hence PD Tamacay discussed some salient features of the DOLE Integrated Livelihood Project (DILP).

Additionally, PD Tamacay took the opportunity to express his gratitude to the barangay captains for their unending support to DOLE’s programs and activities especially during the implementation of Tulong Panghanapbuhay sa Ating Disadvantaged/Displaced Workers (TUPAD) and DILP.
