Tuguegarao City – The Employees’ Compensation Commission (ECC) conducted a comprehensive orientation on the Employees’ Compensation Program (ECP) during the General Membership Assembly of the Cagayan Economic Zone Authority Tripartite Industrial Peace Council (CEZA TIPC) on April 16, 2024 at Villa Saturnina, Santa Ana, Cagayan.

DOLE Region 2 TSSD Chief/CFO Head Laura B. Diciano said to a total of 40 participants from private companies and public sector that, “We initiate the conduct of programs like these in order to empower the working population and inform them of their rights and responsibilities as part of the labor sector.”

As part of the orientation, ECC highlighted the EC Program coverage, responsibilities of employers, employees benefits and services, and process of availing assistance in the event of work-related injuries, illnesses, or its resulting disability or death.

The orientation also served as an opportunity for ECC to showcase its commitment to collaborate with government agencies and industry stakeholders to ensure the effective implementation of the EC Program.

Among the government agencies that joined forces for this initiative were the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE), Social Security System (SSS), Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PhilHealth), Pag-IBIG Fund, and the Occupational Safety and Health Center (OSHC).

The General Membership Assembly of the CEZA TIPC serves as a platform for stakeholders from the public and private sectors to come together and discuss issues related to labor relations, workplace safety, and industrial peace within the Cagayan Economic Zone Authority.

Through this initiative, ECC Region 2 continues to play a vital role in advancing the interests of workers and employers alike, contributing to the overall growth and development of the region’s labor sector.
