As companies face an ever-evolving maze of increasingly complex local and foreign labor and employment laws, our experienced Employment lawyers help employers comply with and successfully navigate these laws.
Our lawyers have helped draft legislation and regulations that have led to meaningful changes in local labor laws and regulations. We stay attuned to the developments in the market by being active in various organizations, including the Information Technology and Business Process Association of the Philippines (IBPAP), Global In-House Center Council Philippines (GICC), People Management Association of the Philippines (PMAP) and the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE). We play a lead role in pushing for policies that will benefit stakeholders.
