Frequently Asked Questions

Labor Law PH is the primary resource and learning site on Philippine employment and labor laws.

Labor Law PH was created in October 2015.

Since then, the website enjoys an average of 100,000 active users, 300,000 views, and 160,000 sessions per Google Analytics.

Labor Law PH initially started as a blog to discuss certain key topics on Philippine employment and labor laws. Over the years, it grew into a resource site to help employers and employees understand and apply the Philippine employment and labor laws in their workplaces.

Before Labor Law PH, there were barely any reliable online resources on Philippine employment and labor laws. While there were websites that posted actual labor laws, there were no legal discussions on how statutes and regulations were implemented or how they were to be interpreted.

Labor Law PH thus aims to provide for trusted and quality articles explaining how Philippine employment and labor laws operate and how they apply in particular situations.

Labor Law PH was founded by Atty. Jericho Del Puerto in October 2015. After years of teaching labor law via seminars and training, he noticed the lack of trusted and quality online resources resulting in the lack of awareness of Philippine employment and labor laws by both the employers and the employees.

Labor Law PH was built from scratch.

The first several content focused on what most employers and employees need to know about Philippine employment and labor laws, such as the statutory monetary benefits, due process in disciplinary action, working conditions, and so on. Over time, additional topics specific to certain industries were added such as contracting & subcontracting, private security firms, etc.
