Bills on anti-contractualization still pending in Lower House

MANILA — Ten proposed legislations seeking to abolish contractualization in the country are now filed in the House of Representatives.

These include the Security Act of 2016 that seeks to ban contractualization and fixed term employment.

The bill also states that an employer cannot just lay off an employee without any valid reason.

According to several lawmakers, this is the solution to stop what they call unjust system of employment.

Akbayan Rep. Tom Villarin said, “There’s only one kind of job and that’s regular job, regular employment. Ibang usapin pa yung sahod (the salary is yet another issue).

Deliberations on the said proposed bills are still pending in Congress. — Nel Maribojoc| UNTV News & Rescue
