Philippine Standard Time:

Consistent with the Aquino administration’s thrust for industry self-regulation and Secretary Baldoz’s directive, the DOLE Regional Offices facilitated the formulation of industry-specific Voluntary Codes of Good Practices (VCGPs) along the 12 Key Employment Generators under the DOLE Jobsfit Project and the 7 Big Winners identified by the Joint Foreign Chamber of Commerce.

The VCGP is a set of voluntary minimum standards on the social and employment aspects of the industry. It may deal with hiring and firing of employees, education and training, health and safety, enforcement of labor standards or improvement of working conditions, dispute settlement, or social dialogue. It seeks to allow the industry social partners to voluntarily self-regulate their engagement and for government to assume a facilitative role.
