Iloilo City – The Employees’ Compensation Commission (ECC) conducted an advocacy seminar with the goal of giving technological and vocational institutions (TVIs) a thorough grasp of the Employees Compensation Program (ECP) on July 4, 2023, at the Smallville 21 Hotel, Iloilo City.

The event was attended by a diverse group of 110 students and educators of technology and vocational institutions from the province and city of Iloilo.

The half-day advocacy seminar, featured resource speakers from the ECC and Occupational Safety and Health Center (OSHC). They imparted their knowledge and viewpoints on a range of topics relating to the EC Program and safety and health at work.

Speakers from ECC-Central Office urged attendees to actively participate in the discussion and pose pertinent questions to better their comprehension of the topic.

Recognizing the importance of the EC Program in providing financial protection and support to employees in case of work-related sickness, injury, or death, the seminar aimed to empower technological and vocational schools to effectively implement and administer the EC Program within their institutions. We hope that the attendees will gain valuable knowledge about the rights and responsibilities of employers and employees, the claims process, and the different types of benefits available under the EC Program,” said Deputy Executive Director Evelyn Ramos who led the ECC team in the said activity.

The activity concluded on a high note, with participants expressing their gratitude for the valuable information and resources they gained throughout the day. Many attendees expressed their commitment to implement the knowledge acquired in their respective institutions, ensuring the proper application and compliance with the EC Program.
