The Employees’ Compensation Commission (ECC), in close coordination with the Department of Labor & Employment – Cordillera Administrative Region and DOLE-Kalinga Field Office, will conduct its first Employees’ Compensation Program  Advocacy Seminar  in Tabuk City, Kalinga, on February 21, 2019 at the Golden Berries Hotel & Convention Center.  The one-day free of charge seminar is on a first-come-first serve basis.

ECC Executive Director Stella Zipagan-Banawis said that the advocacy seminar aims to ensure that workers are informed of their rights, benefits and privileges under the EC Program.

“The ECC, being an International Standards Organization 9001:2015 certified agency, strives for continual improvement in its services provided to the public and strengthen its information campaign not only on the three (3) components of the EC Program namely – prevention, compensation and rehabilitation services but focusing more on the recent EC Program reforms. These reforms are anchored on “3Es”- Equalize, Enhance and Expand EC Benefits  to improve  the EC Program,” Banawis added.

More than 100 participants, composed mostly of employers, human resource officers and company representatives of various establishments and government agencies including members of Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP), Philippine National Police (PNP), Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) and Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP) from different precincts/stations in Tabuk City, are expected to attend the seminar.
