RTWPB-NCR orients Valenzuela barangay officials on Batas Kasambahay

The Regional Tripartite Wages and Productivity Board – National Capital Region (RTWPB-NCR) oriented the Barangay Officials of the City of Valenzuela on Republic Act 10361, otherwise known as Batas Kasambahay last November 15, 2019, at Valenzuela Trade Center.

Said activity was organized by the city’s Worker’s Affairs Office (WAO) through its Barangay Labor Education Committee (BLEC), which aims to capacitate Barangay Officials, on their respective functions and duties in line with the existing rules, law, local regulations and other labor/employment related issuances, that gear towards improving the delivery of local services in their respective barangays.

Among the topics discussed were the PESO Act, Basic Employment Services Training, Alternative Dispute Resolution, new law on Occupational Health and Safety, law on Security of Tenure, General Labor Standards, and other local related legislations.

The Batas Kasambahay was enacted into law last June 4, 2013, which recognizes the rights and benefits of Kasambahay, similar to those workers in the formal sector. Among its salient features is the major role of the barangays particularly in the issuance of the barangay clearance, maintenance of registry, and rescue/rehabilitation of the Kasambahay in coordination with the Department of Social Welfare Development (DSWD).
