Employers told to enlist domestic workers
by PIO release

The Baguio Public Employment Services Office (PESO) is calling on all residents to register their domestic workers with the office to ensure monitoring of their compliance to the provisions of the Kasambahay law.

Based on the data obtained from the PESO, 180 domestic workers are registered in the city but local officials believe the number of domestic workers is higher.

Mayor Mauricio G. Domogan said the registry of domestic workers available at the PESO will serve as one of the bases in the formulation of programs, projects, and activities of the city government to help in extending assistance to them, which is why employers should register their domestic workers.

Domogan said domestic workers play a key role in ensuring the welfare of their employers that is why government agencies and local government units should formulate programs, projects, and activities that will advance their status aside from fixing their minimum wage.

The PESO intends to have the real data on the number of domestic workers in the city so that the office could monitor the compliance of their employers to the other benefits that are supposed to be provided to them.

Earlier, the Regional Tripartite Wages and Productivity Board (RTWPB) Cordillera approved a new wage order that pegged the monthly minimum wage for domestic workers in cities and first class municipalities at P4,000 while domestic workers in other municipalities in the region will be receiving a monthly minimum pay of P3,000.

RTWPB-Cordillera secretary Augusto Aquillo said the wage order shall apply to all domestic workers, whether or on a live-in or live-out arrangement, such as but not limited to general household, yaya, cook, gardener, laundry person, or any person who regularly performs domestic work in one household in an occupational basis.

Those who are not covered by the wage order are service providers, family drivers, children under foster family arrangement, and any other person who perform work occasionally or sporadically and not on occupational basis.

The wage order provided that the wages of the domestic workers shall be paid in cash at least once a month and no deductions from the wages of the domestic workers shall be made other than that which is mandated by law.

In the case of hiring or contracting of domestic work services through a licensed private employment agency, Aquillo said that the wage rates that have been fixed under the order shall be borne by the principals or clients of the agencies and that the contract shall be deemed amended accordingly.

In the event that principals or clients fail to pay the prescribed wage rates, the agencies shall be jointly and severally liable with his principal or client.
