WP-2016-01: Proposing an Inter-Agency Cooperation Framework for the Conduct of Special Assessment or Visit of Establishments (SAVE) by the Department of Labor and Employment

This research presents the Institute for Labor Studies’ (ILS) proposed methodology for systematically integrating activities, with research frame, of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) in its Special Assessments or Visit of Establishments (SAVE) initiative. The main impetus for the writing of this paper is the issuance of DOLE Administrative Order (A.O.) No. 486, series of 2016, signed by Labor Secretary Silvestre H. Bello III on September 19, 2016, directing the ILS to formulate a research framework for the conduct of SAVE, among others. It aims to provide the Labor Secretary concrete and evidence-based policy recommendations for the improvement of the labor laws compliance system (LLCS) and the general welfare of the Filipino workers. SAVE is one of the modalities that can be undertaken by the Labor Secretary to pursue the provisions of Article 128 of the Labor Code of the Philippines, as amended. In basic terms, Article 128 articulates the visitorial and enforcement powers of DOLE Secretary or his duly authorized representatives to (a) visit establishments “at any time of the day or night whenever work is being undertaken” and to have full access to employers’ records of their workers; and (b) assess their compliance with the prevailing minimum labor and occupational safety and health (OSH) standards, and issue compliance or work stoppage orders, whichever is applicable, based on the findings of labor laws compliance officers made in the course of their inspection.
