DOLE launches hotline in Bicol


Workers in Bicol stand to benefit from the Department of Labor and Employment’s new hotline for the region.

The hotline was launched in a press conference in all provinces in the region, including Albay, Sorsogon, Naga City, Catanduanes, and Masbate City.

DOLE Bicol OIC Regional Director Atty. Ma. Karina Perida-Trayvilla said the hotline can be contacted via 0918-309-6665.

“Workers who are inquiring about applicable wages and wage related benefits, such as minimum wages, overtime pay, holiday pay, and similar concerns; and workers with cases filed in DOLE offices, attached agencies, and POLOs claiming unpaid wages and benefits, will also be assisted by the 24/7 DOLE hotline services,” it said.

DOLE said the hotline was originally launched last July 14, but had initially focused on the “Bogus Na Inspektor” campaign.
