KNOWING ONE’S LABOR RIGHTS


Have you even been in a situation where you either feel like being used or perhaps being exploited at work and you are wondering whether to just accept the fact that employees are paid to work and to bear all these work-related woes or rather take a stand and fight for what you think is right and just?

Well, almost all of us employees do feel the same way but being exploited is something that is out of anyone’s employment contract. We are paid to do work based on our expertise but coping up maltreatments and office abuses is out of the scope of work. Thus, we have the Labor Code as our protection.

Not most of us employees are aware of such laws that aim to protect and provide legal remedy to labor. Thus, I am sharing some links for your own reading so that perhaps you can be educated and share the learnings to your colleagues so they can be aware. Thank you.
