Labor education now accessible online
Learning about labor rights and responsibilities has been made more accessible online through the Labor and Employment Education Services (LEES) e-Learning Portal.
In a report to Secretary Silvestre Bello III, the Bureau of Labor Relations (BLR) has institutionalized the online portal which presently offers two free courses, the Basic Labor and Employment Education Course and the Comprehensive Course on Freedom of Association and Collective Bargaining.
Through the platform, BLR aims to equip workers and employers alike with the right labor information so that they will become better partners in attaining and maintaining harmonious labor-management relationships.
The Basic Labor and Employment Education Course covers topics on pre-employment, employment, and post-employment, as well as the processes involved in entrepreneurship and professional practice.
The Comprehensive Course on Freedom of Association and Collective Bargaining, on the other hand, intends to enhance the capacity of multisectoral stakeholders to promote the effective implementation of Freedom of Association and Collective Bargaining principles in the Philippines, based on principles under the International Labour Organization (ILO) Conventions 87 and 98.
The course also aims to improve the participation of tripartite social partners in the existing mechanisms in addressing violations of workers’ civil liberties and trade union rights.
