Contractual agreements are now managed by the DOLE’s local employment bureau.

The management of contracting agreements in the private sector would now be under the control of the Bureau of Local Employment (BLE).

This came about after the Bureau of Working Conditions’ function was transferred to the BLE by the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) through Labor Advisory No. 5-2023, which was signed by Secretary Bienvenido Laguesma on March 11 and made public on Thursday (BWC).

According to Articles 106 to 109 of the Labor Code and its Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR), “the program administration and management of contracting arrangements have been moved from the BWC to the BLE,” he stated.

Based on the nature of the business and contractual relationship and in accordance with other applicable laws, rules, and regulations, the BLE is required to respond to the request letter for non-coverage.

The BWC has been instructed by the DOLE chief to turn over all program-related papers and data at the same time.

Likewise, it is mandated to offer technical support to the BLE throughout the transition.

On the other hand, Laguesma stated that the relevant regional offices of the agency will be in charge of processing registration applications, conducting inspections, revoking or canceling registrations, monitoring, and reporting.

Any individuals or organizations functioning as contractors must, by law, register with the DOLE.

According to Department Order No. 174 of 2017, individuals who failed to register must assume that the contractor is just contracting for labor.
