The ECC’s massive information campaign aims  to enhance the  awareness of  workers on Employees’ Compensation Program. This is done through the conduct of seminars at  work-places and in different cities in the country.

A consultation meeting with the Social Security System and the Government Service Insurance System’s representatives is also slated  to update officers on new policies on the Employees’ Compensation Program including the recently approved 10% across-the board  increase in EC pension for public sector employees.

The Employees’ Compensation Program is designed to provide workers and their dependents with income benefits, medical, and other benefits in the event of work-related sickness, injury or death.
