It’s now up to Congress to abolish ‘endo,’ says Escudero

The ball is now in the court of Congress to decide the fate of "endo" (end of contract), Sen. Francis "Chiz" Escudero said on Wednesday.   Employers who practice endo offer tenures shorter than six months, the threshold at which a worker must be made permanent and entitled to benefits.   Escudero made the statement a day after President Rodrigo Duterte signed Executive Order No. 51 prohibiting certain forms of short-term employment while allowing schemes, like seasonal or project-based jobs of janitors and maintenance workers, to continue.   The executive order (EO) basically reiterated existing policies on contracting, and the President called on Con...Keep on reading: It’s now up to Congress to abolish ‘endo,’ says Escudero.....»»

Duterte signs executive order on ‘endo’

CEBU CITY --- President Rodrigo Duterte signed here on Labor Day an executive order (EO) that prohibits illegal labor contracting but still allows some forms of contractualization, a scheme used by employers to avoid regularizing workers. The EO dismayed labor groups and got some members of the business community worried. The President, whose campaign promise was to end contractualization and "endo,'' acknowledged that a more comprehensive action on contractualization had to be done by revisiting the Labor Code, which he described as "outdated."
