Event Details

As the Philippine government considers lifting ECQ and workplace restrictions, employers should prepare to address employment concerns related to reopening the workplace, such as bringing back employees placed on forced leave, new legal requirements, measures to ensure safety of employees and clients, telecommuting, and flexible working arrangements. Employers who strategize dealing with these concerns will be best prepared to resume their operations and navigate these uncharted territories.


Quisumbing Torres partners Kenneth Chua, Dennis Quintero and Eliseo Zuñiga, Jr. will provide guidelines to help employers manage the challenges that may arise from resumption of operations amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.​
