JHMC addresses issues on domestic violence
by Press release

Government-owned-and-controlled corporation John Hay Management Corporation conducted an awareness seminar on Republic Act 9262 or the Anti-Violence against Women and their Children Act and Republic Act 7877 or the Anti-Sexual Harassment Act of 1995 at the DBP Training Center, Romulo Drive, Baguio City.

The seminar is part of the initiatives of the JHMC under its gender and development program to address domestic violence, a prevailing concern that poses danger and affects the productivity and efficiency of workers and the wellbeing of women in the community in general.

The activity is considered timely and relevant, due to the number of domestic violence cases logged recorded by various women’s desks in Baguio City Police and other provinces in the Cordillera.

The seminar was attended by student leaders from the Baguio City National High School; members of the Girl and Boy Scouts of the Philippines; barangay officials within the John Hay Reservation Area; and representatives of various business enterprises within the John Hay Special Economic Zone.

Dr. Jamie Eloise M. Agbayani, JHMC president and chief executive officer, emphasized the importance of the seminar as the scope of abuse on women and children is extensive, encompassing physical, psychological, emotional, economic, and mental abuse.

Resource speaker Atty. Emily A. Balungay of the Civil Service Commission-CAR discussed the areas covered by RA 9262 and RA 7877 and answered queries from the participants. She provided valuable information and practical tips on enforcing one’s rights under these laws by discussing the elements of the offense from its commission up to the filing of a case with the proper agency until it reaches the court for resolution.

JHMC advocates for ending domestic violence and aims to instill joy and love of family as the driving force in having affectionate and proficient citizens.

Upholding its mandate as an engine of national economic growth and development within the region, JHMC continues to be vigilant in promoting the rights and interests of its employees, locators and the communities within the reservation by lending a hand in addressing the pressing problems in the society.
