Business owners, human resource personnel, administration heads, department managers, and key officers handling people in Cebu are all invited to a labor law seminar organized by Powermax Consulting Group Inc. The event is set for August 29, 2012, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., at City Sports Club. The speaker of the seminar is labor law expert Atty. Amor Perdigon.
When you establish a business, it is important to know the basic laws that surround employment. Unpleasant situations in the workplace are unavoidable so you have to be familiar with the labor law to avoid potentially detrimental legal issues. Organizations need to set effective disciplinary rules and regulations to uphold order in the workplace.
One of the most challenging tasks of a human resource officer is employee discipline. Improper implementation of employee discipline may lead to back wages, separation pay, damages, as well as attorney’s fees. Aside from knowing all the requirements in exercising disciplinary measures to workers, it is important to have basic knowledge of the legal mandates and pro-labor policies of the Philippines, the rights of workers, laws governing employment relations, and levels of management prerogatives.
The seminar will have two modules. The first module entitled “What Employers Need to Know about Employee Discipline will be discussed in the morning. It comprises of (1) The Constitutional Provisions Affecting Labor - Labor as a primary social economic force (Art. II, Section 18), (2) Statutory Provisions on Labor, (3) Employment Relationship, (4) The Management Rights and Prerogatives, and (5) The Rights of Workers.
In the afternoon, the second module entitled “Employee Discipline” will be discussed. It covers the following topics: (1) Concept, (2) Procedural Due Process, (3) Instances when First Notice is NOT Required, (4) Substantial Due process, (5) Termination by the Employer, (6) Termination by the Employee (Art. 285), (7) Four Instances of Dismissals; Effects, (8) Constructive Dismissal, (9) Preventive Suspension, (10) Tips on Employee Discipline, and (11) Incidence After Termination.
