Big business are first to receive certificates of compliance with labor laws
In the NCR, Baldoz awards CoC to 278 establishments; McDonald’s, Mercury Drug, and Puregold among them
Labor and Employment Secretary Rosalinda Dimapilis-Baldoz yesterday lauded the 278 companies, among them marquee names in Philippine business, in the National Capital Region (NCR) that were awarded with Certificates of Compliance (CoC) on General Labor Standards and Occupational Safety and Health Standards.
“I salute you for your willingness and volunteerism to undergo assessment under the DOLE’s new labor laws compliance system (LLCS),” Baldoz said in her message after she handed out the CoCs to representatives, among them owners themselves, of the 278 establishments that have been certified compliant with labor laws and occupational safety and health standards at the first industry-wide joint assessment in the NCR, held at the Occupational Safety and Health Center on Thursday last week.
The 278 compose the first batch of establishments awarded the CoCs after the joint assessment.
“The Certificates of Compliance that the DOLE awards you today will hopefully inspire and encourage you to be more committed in creating a climate of productivity and decent work. This is also a way for you to help us achieve our goal of inclusive growth,” said Baldoz in her message.
Golden Arches Development Corporation (franchise holder of McDonald’s); Mercury Drug Corporation; Manila North Harbor Port; Hotel Oceanis/China Oceanis Phils. Inc.; Broadway Motor Sales Corp (Nissan-UN); 2Go Group Inc.; 2Go Express, Inc; Maynilad; Puregold Price Club, Inc.; Radio Veritas Global Broadcasting System, Inc.; Toyota Qiezon Ave.; Pinakamasarap Corp.; Bestank Manufacturing Corporation; Candyman Inc.; JBC Food Corp.; Convergys Philippines Services Corporation; DHL Express Phils. Corporation; KLM Royal Dutch Airlines; and Destileria Limtuaco and Co., Inc. were among the country’s top businesses that received their CoC from Baldoz.
Also awarded their CoC were Pfizer Inc.; Medicard Philippines, Inc.; Sanofi Aventis Philippines, Inc.; Sun Life Grepa Financial, Inc.; Discovery Tours, Inc.; Honda Cars; JP Morgan Chase Bank, N.A.; Zitech Asia Pilipinas, Inc.; Beuchem Industries International, Inc.; Fortune Packaging Corporation; Puregold Finance, Inc.; and Yakult Marketing Corporation.
In her message, Baldoz underscored the DOLE’s heightened and intensified effort to foster among the country’s private business establishments a culture of voluntary compliance with labor laws and OSH standards for the benefit of Filipino workers.
“Nagpapasalamat ako sa mga kompanyang binigyan ng CoC. Talaga pong natutuwa ako na kayo ay boluntaryong sumailalim sa proseso ng labor law compliance system. When you comply with labor standards and occuapational safety and health standards that is very good for your business and to your employees,” said Baldoz.
The Labor Laws Compliance System, embodied under Department Order 131-13, is a reform program of the DOLE that aims to build a culture of voluntary compliance and to strengthen industrial peace and harmony in the country.
Baldoz said that what makes the LLCS more acceptable and effective is that it is tripartite, involving workers and employers which the government brings together to foster common understanding that it is all for their benefit to comply with all labor laws and OSH standards.
She emphasized that the LLCS is in compliance with the directives of President Benigno S. Aquino III to the DOLE to execute all labor laws to guarantee the welfare and benefits of employees and to ensure that “jobs already here are not lost”.
