The Department of Labor and Employment has issued guidelines on remedial measures in view of the COVID-19 outbreak. Aside from prescribing work from home arrangements, the Department shall be extending financial support to affected workers in the lump sum amount of P5,000.00 each. Indeed, workers’ wages will be reduced during this time by reason of temporary closure of the establishment or adoption of irregular work arrangements, and leave credits will not be enough to compensate. Thus, financial support from our government is most welcome.
