WP-2019-02: An Assessment of Time and Motion Study and Facilities Evaluation (Phase I)

The focus of this study is to assess the guidelines governing the implementation of the conduct of Time and Motion Study (TMS) and Facilities Evaluation (FE), as wage regulatory procedures by virtue of the Labor Code of the Philippines. These procedures are used in determining fair and reasonable wages and value of facilities furnished by the employer to his/her employees, respectively. Based on established facts and experience of the regulatory bodies behind the administration of said procedures in the enterprise level, presently, there are issues and challenges that surround its implementation. The primary objective is to protect the workers’ rights to reasonable returns to investment and just share to fruits of production, and at the same time to effectively and efficiently conduct the procedures as possible. In order to gather data and information, the researchers alongside with the National Wages and Productivity Commission (NWPC) and Regional Tripartite Wage and Productivity Boards (RTWPB) have conducted a series of Focus Group Discussion (FGD) in establishments/firms to gather insights which will serve as important inputs for the study. The findings show that: (1) TMS has become a remedial measure to such extent that it merely deviated from its primary purpose of business improvement and encouraging productivity among workers; and (2) FE has become a tool of employers in reducing their business operational expenses at expense of workers’ wages.
