The seminar aimed to facilitate voluntary compliance on labor laws and occupational safety and health standards, and help the expatriate locators improve their business processes.
In his opening message, AFAB Chairman and Administrator Deogracias G.P. Custodio urged the participants to apply the labor standards in their companies to improve productivity, maintain harmonious employer-employee relationship and further increase profitability of their enterprises.
DOLE Region III Assistant Director Geraldine Panlilio, resource person of the said seminar, discussed topics on providing security of tenure, just compensation and related benefits to workers and establishing a safe and healthy workplace.
Meanwhile, the AFAB commissioned an interpreter for Chinese locators to facilitate speedy understanding of the rules and regulation mandated by the Labor Code.
As an emerging fashion manufacturing hub of the Philippines, the FAB hopes to be the first labor standard compliant zone in the country. This is in pursuit of its vision to be the freeport of choice in the country by 2020, becoming a center of trade, innovation and sustainable development in Asia and promoting work-life balance, global competitiveness and environmental protection.
