    PHILIPPINE HR FORMS

    Philippine HR Forms

    Communication is the most essential means to lead people and manage organizations.  Written communication is second only to the person-to-person exchange of information, data, and knowledge.  But written communication becomes documentary evidence in court, in labor tribunals, and administrative agencies.

    This work attempts to fulfill the dreams of every HR professional, to improve the quality of written communication in leading human capital and managing human behavior in business organizations.  From talent acquisition (recruitment) to total rewards management (compensation and benefits), and from learning and development (training) to organizational justice (labor relations and employee engagement), we need a standardized template to guide HR professionals.

    THE 8 SECRETS FOR SUCCESS IN LEADING AND MANAGING PEOPLE THROUGH EMPLOYEE DISCIPLINE (Legal and Administrative Dimensions) Book 1

    The 8 Secrets for Success in Leading and Managing People Through Employee Discipline Book One (Legal and Administrative Dimensions)

    This book is a labor of love, conceived in the womb of great faith and delivered with the blood sweat and tears of one who worked hard, inspired only by an unwavering hope that the Filipino can become one of the best in the world.

    I did not write this book based on pure theories and fantasies.  I immersed myself for more than 40 years, I the actual practice of my profession, and learned thousands of valuable lessons that no academician could have accumulated from mere reading and research.   I met and interacted with workers, union leaders, government functionaries, businessmen, managers, and supervisors.  I listened intently, pondered on each experience, and gained insights that prove useful I coming out with this work.

    THE 8 SECRETS FOR SUCCESS IN LEADING AND MANAGING PEOPLE THROUGH EMPLOYEE DISCIPLINE (Behavioral and Spiritual Dimensions) Book 2

    PHILIPPINE LABOR RELATIONS LAW and JURISPRUDENCE

    The Philippine Labor Relations Law and Jurisprudence

    We have to keep pace with the massive and unpredictable changes in technology as well as the political and socio-economic developments at a speed and velocity that may astound and even disorient us.  The power shift is happening even as we read this.  It is here with us now.  We must be prepared to face it.

    Most important among our preparation is a purposive, coherent, intelligent, and strategic reexamination of labor relation policies, laws, and decisions.  The rule governing the relationship between labor and capital is an essential ingredient of that preparation.

    Lawyers, businessmen, labor leaders, government officials, and personnel do need an analysis and a critique of our labor relation law to guide their decisions and plans.  Students need an interpretation that will express even the riskiest views under an atmosphere of academic freedom.

    This humble work is a small input into that important task.

    0.00

    On this webinar, Atty. Josephus Jimenez, the former Undersecretary of the Department of Labor and Employment, will discuss and explain topics related to the controversial issue “Can Employers Fire Employees Infected With COVID-19?”

    • What are the options and alternatives? Can an employee file a leave with pay or is it leave without pay? Or is it resignation with honor and compassion? How about early retirement or termination with separation benefits?
    • How do we apply Article 299 (previously article 284)?
      a. if continued employment is prohibited by the law
      b. if prejudicial to his own life
      c. if prejudicial to the life of his co-employees
      d. Separation pay – is this 1/2 month of every year of service?

    Employee and Labor Relations

     

    Introduction

    Employee and Labor Relations can make or break a company.  Indeed, a positive and professional relationship between employers and employees leads to greater motivation and employee engagement.  Likewise, it prevents and resolves work related problems, including performance management, conflict management, corrective actions, grievance and complaint administration, arbitration, unfair labor practice charges, union relations, and other related issues.  While most leaders acknowledge the critical value of employee relations, very few are familiar with the right steps on how to address this issue.  Instead of leaving things to chance, encourage your HR and your Line Managers and Supervisors to gain from the precious experience distilled from the years of experience of our seasoned speakers.
