The Employees’ Compensation Commission welcomed the year with a good news for workers in Roxas City and Capiz Province thru a radio promotion of ECC in the live interview conducted by Bombo Radyo-Philippines, anchored by Assistant Station Manager Joele Melvin Estorninos in his regular slot on January 25, 2017.

The ECP was discussed by focusing on its frequently asked questions, specifically on the filing process and its corresponding process cycle time, instances where an injury can be compensable and how can an illness be proven work-connected.

Coverage of all workers in both private and public sectors, including uniformed personnel, seafarers and Kasambahays, was explained to the listeners of the program.

“Radio stations, like the Bombo Radyo-Philippines, have been a great help in assisting our Regional Extension Units (REU) officers, not only in Capiz and Roxas, but all over the country,” pointed out by ECC Executive Director Stella Zipagan-Banawis.

Banawis added that broadcast and print media can always call our REU officers for news and updates on the Employees’ Compensation Program.
