After the success of the Employees’ Compensation Advocacy Seminar in seven regions nationwide, the Employees’ Compensation Commission (ECC) will continue its awareness campaign in Region 12, particularly at the Hotel Micah, Barangay Lanao in Kidapawan City on 16 October 2019.
More than 120 company representatives from various private establishments and government agencies including uniformed personnel from the Armed Forces of the Philippines, Philippine National Police, Bureau of Jail Management and the Bureau of Fire Protection and their civilian personnel from North Cotabato and nearby provinces are expected to attend this one-day, free of charge seminar.
The ECP Advocacy Seminar aims to ensure that workers are informed of their rights, benefits and privileges under PD 626, as amended, also known as the Employees’ Compensation and the State Insurance Fund.
To set the tone for the said activity, radio interviews were scheduled over NDBC and Brigada Kidapawan in coordination with the Department of Labor and Employment 12 Kidapawan Field Office.
Topics to be discussed are the three components of the EC Program namely prevention, compensation and rehabilitation services and the recent EC Program reforms anchored on the “3Es” – Equalize, Enhance and Expand strategies, in response to the challenges facing the EC Program.
Employees’ Compensation Commission is an attached agency of the Department of Labor and Employment mandated by law to provide meaningful and appropriate compensation benefits and services to workers in the event of work-related contingencies.
