TARLAC CITY, Tarlac (April 30, 2023) — The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) is set to conduct an education seminar and payout activities on Monday in time for the 121st Labor Day celebration this year.
These activities will be conducted in partnership with SM City Tarlac and the local government unit, which will involve free labor education seminar for private companies in line with this year’s Labor Day theme “Pabahay, Bilihing Abot-Presyo, Benepisyo ng Matatag na Trabaho Para sa Manggagawang Pilipino.”
“We are inviting interested individuals who want to know more about our labor laws to register online. Due to limited slots, we can only accommodate the first 200 registered participants,” DOLE Tarlac Field Office chief Aurita Laxamana said.
Establishments may register one management representative and one labor representative from their organization through bit.ly/LaborEducationSMTarlac2023.
Aside from the seminar, releasing of salaries for workers under the Tulong Panghanapbuhay sa Ating Disadvantaged/Displaced Workers (Tupad) program will also be held, Laxamana said.
She said that about 647 beneficiaries from Capas, 300 individuals in San Manuel, and 199 workers from La Paz will each receive P4,600 for rendering 10 days of community service in the program.
DOLE Tarlac will continue Tupad payouts on May 2-5 to 1,985 workers from the municipalities of Concepcion, Gerona, Camiling, Bamban, Paniqui, Victoria, and San Jose.
“Since Labor Day is not just a one-day celebration, we have weeklong activities lined up including the Job Fair and Caravan Services on May 2 led by the provincial government of Tarlac,” Laxamana said.
She reminded jobseekers to wear appropriate clothes and bring their resumés and other important documents for the job interview, urging job hunters to upscale and hone their skills through different training to ensure that they are the right person for the job.
“Just put their (jobseekers) best foot forward. If they might not get hired immediately, continue to develop themselves, so they could become more employable later in the future. This would make them more ready in case that an opportunity comes their way,” Laxamana said.
