The Employees’ Compensation Program Advocacy Seminar for CY 2015 will kick-off on January 22, 2015 at the Isabela Zen Hotel, Santiago City, Isabela, to strengthen the information campaign of the Employees’ Compensation Commission about the ECP.
The ECC is designed to provide employees and their families with income benefits as well as medical benefits in the event of work-related disease, injury or death. It is important therefore that workers should know about this.
It is in this premise that a one-day free of charged advocacy seminar on the ECP was conceptualized.
The advocacy seminar aims that this program be properly communicated to everyone in the workplace. With the effort of the ECC-REU2 and in coordination with the DOLE regional and field offices, ECC expects 120 or more company representatives to attend the said activity to increase the publics awareness on the Employees’ Compensation Programs and services.
The three components of the EC Program to be discussed in the said seminar will be prevention, compensation and the rehabilitation services.
Also, consultation meetings with the GSIS and SSS medical officers or branch representatives will be a part of the said acitivity in order to improve the rules of procedures on disposition of the EC claims, the uniformity in processing of EC claims and EC cases, and to erase once and for the doubts that have been clouding the minds of SSS/GSIS evaluators when resolving EC claims.
