Former Special Assistant to the President Christopher Lawrence “Bong” Go on Friday thanked President Rodrigo Duterte for signing into law the measure allowing telecommuting for workers in the private sector, saying it would benefit both the laborers and employers.
Republic Act No. 11165 or “An Act Institutionalizing Telecommuting as an Alternative Work Arrangement for Employees in the Private Sector” was signed into law by President Duterte last December 20, 2018 but was announced by Malacañang only on Friday.
Telecommuting refers to a work arrangement that allows an employee in the private sector to work from an alternative workplace, including the home, with the use of new telecommunication and computer technology.
“Nagpapasalamat tayo kay Tatay Digong sa pagpirma nya ng Telecommuting Act na magbibigay ng dagdag na benepisyo para sa ating mga manggagawa,” Go said.
(We thank the President for signing the Telecommuting Act which will give additional benefits to our workers.)
Go said the new law would be advantageous for workers in the private sector who often have to endure the ordeal of heavy traffic, particularly in urban centers of the country.
He said at the same time, employers will benefit from increased productivity resulting from improved job satisfaction.
“Ang batas na ito ay patunay lamang na tapat si Pangulong Duterte sa kanyang pangako na maibsan ang pahirap sa ating mga kababayan at umangat ang antas ng ating pamumuhay,” Go said.
(This law proves how sincere President Duterte is in fulfilling his promise to lessen the hardships of our citizens and uplift their quality of life.)
