2013 TCCLS scorecard: 58 models of voluntary labor law compliance
Baldoz congratulates Philippine industry awardees of tripartite certification
The DOLE is ending the year 2013 with a modest, but bountiful harvest, of 58 private companies with tripartite certification of compliance with labor standards.
Labor and Employment Secretary Rosalinda Dimapilis-Baldoz proudly said this yesterday as she congratulated the 58 establishments that have been awarded the Department of Labor and Employment’s (DOLE) Tripartite Certificate of Compliance with Labor Standards (TCCLS) in the latter part of the year after “very careful” tripartite assessment and verification.
“The 58 companies is a modest start, but they set the example as models of the DOLE’s new and vigorous pursuit of the best in voluntary compliance with the country’s labor standards. The value of the award lies in the fact that it was tripartite in nature, meaning, it’s the workers and their peers in the industry which decided on the award,” she said.
The TCCLS awardees cut across the major industries of the country, such as healthcare/hospitals, educational institutions, manufacturing (food, beverage, packaging, infrastructure, semiconductors and electronics, wiring harness) services, hotel and restaurant, agri-business, agriculture, wholesale and retail trade, power generation, transportation, electronic information processing services, mining, and construction.

The TCCLS constitutes the first level seal of good housekeeping issued by the DOLE through its regional offices to enrolled establishments that consistently comply voluntarily with labor standards. “The Award is bestowed upon deserving establishments that mirror excellence in voluntary labor standards compliance,” said Baldoz.
The TCCLS is instituted under Department Order No. 115-11, Series of 2011, otherwise known as the Guidelines in the Implementation of the Incentivizing Compliance Program (ICP). The Guidelines promote voluntary labor standards compliance with general labor standards, occupational safety and health standards, and the country’s Child Labor Law, Republic Act 9231, by giving due recognition and incentives to compliant establishments.
It is a basic pre-qualification requirement to the DOLE Secretary’s Labor Law Compliance Award and to the golden standard to voluntary labor standards compliance in the Philippines, the Tripartite Seal of Excellence.
