The Department of Labor and Employment is asking workers to report labor malpractices as the agency conducts a crackdown on all erring employers defying labor management orders.

DOLE Assistant Secretary Jojie V. Aragon said that employers defying DOLE orders are  set to answer for labor malpractices committed.

This, as the labor office continues to conduct an assessment of all private companies.

First and foremost on the list of violations being checked by the labor office is the company’s adherence to minimum age policies of the government.

“Bilang na ang mga araw ninyo.  Mga employers na hindi sinusunod ang Labor Code para sa benepisyo ng mga workers,” said Jojie V. Aragon, DOLE Assistant Secretary.

Aragon said that DOLE field offices are conducting their assessment, ocular inspection, evaluation and recording on all small, medium and big business enterprises to check if they are implementing the minimum wage order.

“If we find out that they are violating the law, the employers will face the consequences,” said Aragon.

Aragon also calls on employees nationwide to assert their rights and inform DOLE offices of violations committed by their employers.

Aragon arrived in the city to keynote the115th Labor Day observance program held at the Western Mindanao State University yesterday.  (Allen Abastillas)
