Learn more about labor rights and responsibilities through the Labor and Employment Education Services (LEES) e-Learning Portal.
The Department of Labor and Employment (DoLE) on Monday said the Bureau of Labor Relations (BLR) institutionalized the online portal to equip workers and employers with the correct information for them to become “better partners in attaining and maintaining harmonious labor-management relationships.”
The online portal presently offers two free courses, the Basic Labor and Employment Education Course and the Comprehensive Course on Freedom of Association and Collective Bargaining.
The Basic Labor and Employment Education Course covers topics on pre-employment, employment, and post-employment, as well as the processes involved in entrepreneurship and professional practice.
The Comprehensive Course on Freedom of Association and Collective Bargaining, on the other hand, intends to enhance the capacity of multi-sectoral stakeholders to promote the effective implementation of Freedom of Association and Collective Bargaining principles in the Philippines, based on principles under the International Labour Organization (ILO) Conventions 87 and 98.
“The course also aims to improve the participation of tripartite social partners in the existing mechanisms in addressing violations of workers’ civil liberties and trade union rights,” said DoLE.
