ECC to boost Employees Compensation Program awareness in Tarlac
CITY OF TARLAC – The Employees’ Compensation Commission (ECC) will be holding an Employees’ Compensation Program (ECP) Advocacy Seminar tomorrow, July 18, at the Dampa Seafoods Restaurant in Tarlac City.
 
The ECP, is one of the flagship programs of the ECC which aims to assist workers who suffer work-related sickness or injury resulting to disability of death.
 
The seminar, which is free of charge was initiated by the ECC Regional Extension Unit No. 3 in partnership with the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) Tarlac Field Office.
 
DOLE Regional Director Atty. Ana Dione said that the seminar aims to intensify awareness of workers on their rights, benefits, and privileges under the ECP.
 
“We have already sent our invites to more than 120 human resource officers, employers and labor union representatives from different private establishments, and various government agencies, including uniformed personnel from the Armed Forces of the Philippines, Philippine National Police, Philippine Navy and Bureau of Fire Protection, to attend this one-day seminar,” Dione, explained, adding:
 
“We are enjoining them to take this opportunity to be familiarized with the various program interventions the ECC has to offer. At present, the EEC Regional Extension Unit No. 3 is housed at the One Stop Shop Center for OFWs (OSSCOs) at the Clark Polytechnic, Clark Freeport Zone.”
 
Dione noted that the topics covered and to be discussed during the seminar include prevention, compensation and rehabilitation components of the ECP.
 
Aside from this, the recent EC Program reforms anchored on the “3Es”- Equalized, Enhanced and Expand strategies, in response to the challenges facing the EC Program will also be highlighted.
 
The ECC is an attached agency of the DOLE mandated by law to provide meaningful and appropriate compensation benefits and services to workers in the event of work-related contingencies.
