Oct 9, 2018 @ 16:00

The House of Representatives has approved on third and final reading the proposed four-day work week for employees.

The House said House Bill No. 6152 will “promote business competitiveness, work efficiency and labor productivity.”

Baguio City Representative Mark Go, one of the proposed measure’s authors, said the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) already allows companies to go on compressed work week schemes.

Under his proposed measure, companies have the option to have a four-, five-, or six-day work week.

“These arrangements give employers and employees flexibility in fixing hours of work compatible with business requirements and the employees’ need for a balanced work-life,” Go said.
