For opening a DOLE Clinic in Naga City, Cebu Provincial Board commends DOLE

Cebu City, Philippines. The Cebu Provincial Board, in a resolution, lauded the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE-7) for opening a DOLE Clinic in the City of Naga, Cebu. 

The Resolution authored by Provincial Board Member ThadeoJovito M. Ouano, cited the relevance of the Clinic in extending help and assistance to the working populace in the municipalities and cities in the Province of Cebu in addressing various matters of concern regarding employment. 

The Department was also commended for being a governmental agency with a continuing mission, among others, of maintaining a harmonious, equitable and stable labor relations system that is supportive to the national economic policies and programs. 

It can be recalled that the DOLE on 21 November 2017 launched in the City of Naga, Cebu the DOLE Clinic, which is the Department’s contribution to establishing a mechanism of bringing its programs and services closer to the community. 

“We feel happy and at the same time humbled by the recognition we got from the Cebu Provincial Board. These are gestures that we don’t actually deserve getting since it is our mandate, in the first place, to have our services felt by the people. But with the commendation given to us, we feel all the more inspired to find ways and strategize on how we can further serve the public,” said DOLE-7 OIC-Regional Director Cyril L. Ticao. 

By closely working with the local government units, the DOLE through the Clinic would be able to serve by way of providing pre-employment facilitation, labor standards enforcement, dispute resolution, and livelihood assistance, among others. 

The DOLE Clinic would also be the center of the Department’s public assistance at the community level offering information, services, and referral to appropriate agencies on matters such as local and overseas employment, entitlements under general labor standards and occupational safety and health standards, labor relations, and livelihood assistance. 

Orientations regarding the program had already been conducted with the Officers and Board of Directors of the Regional Peso Managers in Lapu-lapu City. The same initiative was also launched with the Cebu Association of PESO Managers (CAPESOM) as well as in Siquijor and with the Bohol Association of PESO Managers (BAPESOM) in Tagbilaran City, Bohol.
