DOLE Tarlac kicks off B.R.I.C.K. on Labor Laws



TARLAC— Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) Tarlac Field Office launches Building Responsible Investments by Circuiting Knowledge (B.R.I.C.K.) on Labor Laws, an initiative aimed to encourage businesses in targeted municipalities to voluntarily and proactively comply with labor standards and other related labor issuances.


DOLE Tarlac OIC Aurita Laxamana in an interview mentioned that this endeavor is made possible through the cooperation of the offices of local chief executives (LCE) and Public Employment Service Offices (PESO) in the province. “The conduct of B.R.I.C.K. on labor laws is a brain child of the DOLE Tarlac Field Office, which is patterned to the Continuing Labor and Employment Education Program (CLEEP) of the Department,” she added.


While CLEEP focuses on DOLE’s intervention that promotes labor education, BRICK on Labor Laws provides an avenue for labor education while also strengthening the linkages between the Department and its LCEs, together with their respective PESOs. With the initiative of the LCEs visited, noncompliance with labor standards may have an effect on the subsequent renewal of annual business permits.


DOLE Tarlac recently conducted a BRICK session in the municipality of Capas on July 16, 2019. They were joined by Hon. Mayor Reynaldo "Reycat" Catacutan, PESO Capas, and 26 management representatives. In the next batch of BRICK on Labor Laws, a total of 750 management representatives across different industries in the municipality of Victoria is targeted.


The first two batches were held in the municipalities of Panique and Camiling on June 26 and July 5, 2019, respectively.


RD Angara-Campita commended DOLE Tarlac for going above and beyond. “This collective effort from DOLE Tarlac further solidifies not only the partnership of the Department with the private businesses in the Province, but also with its PESOs and local chief executives,” she added.



The BRICK on Labor Laws is intended to be DOLE Tarlac’s continuous regular and annual activity covering all municipalities in the area. DOLE Tarlac is optimistic that this initiative will help keep and uphold a peaceful industrial front in the entire province.
