by admin May 22, 2017

On March 19, 2017, the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) released Department Order No. 174, series of 2017 (D.O. 174), laying down its new regulations governing contracting and subcontracting arrangements. The new DO superseded DOLE DO No. 18-A (D.O. 18-A), which had been the governing rule on labor contractualization since 2011. According to Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello, the new DO was intended to put closure on the issues surrounding the various forms of contractual arrangements and end-of-contract schemes that came about in relation to the then existing DO 18-A. - Source at: GMA Network News
