Thank you for taking interest.
As you may have learned, we are developing books and later on a courses on Labor Law specifically designed for students. Yes, we will be making it as simple and easy to understand as possible (crossing fingers here).
Now, we have been wondering if the content is something that the audience wants to learn. That would be you, the student – the college student.
We’ve been taught that college is there to prepare you for this large part of your life, called work. Curiously, however, we were never taught about labor laws and regulations, such as what are different kinds of employment arrangements (regular, probationary, project, etc.), what are the rules on salaries/wages and benefits (SSS, PhilHealth, Pag-IBIG), and our right to due process in the unlikely event that we commit violations.
Sad to say, many go through their lives not knowing about these things. That’s why, they do not know their rights and obligations. Often, they learn it too late when they have been fired from their jobs.
We want to change this.
In line with our vision to increase awareness and application of Philippine Labor Laws in the workplace, we aim to teach students as early as possible labor laws through books and courses.
