Duterte Rejects Anti Endo Bill

President Rodrigo Duterte rejected the Security of Tenure bill most commonly known as Anti Endo Bill.

Endo refers to a short-term employment. It is a form of contractualization which involves companies giving workers temporary employment that last them less than six months and then terminating their employment just short of being regularized in order to skirt on the fees which come with regularization.

Some examples of such benefits contractual workers don’t get as compared to regularized workers are the benefits of having an employer and employee SSS, Philhealth, and the Pag-ibig housing fund contribution, unpaid leaves, and the 13th Month Pay, among others.

What is Anti Endo Bill?

This bill aims to abolish labor contractualization. It seeks to strengthen workers’ security of tenure and prohibits the practice of “endo” or “end of contract.”

Why Duterte rejected the bill?

According to the President, he stands with a firm commitment in protecting the workers’ right to security of tenure by eradicating all forms of abusive employment practices.

However, it will destroy the delicate balance and will place capital and management at an impossibly difficult predicament with adverse consequences to the Filipino workers in the long-term.

“Indeed, while labor-only contracting must be prohibited, legitimate job-contracting should be allowed, provided that the contractor is well capitalized.”

“Our goal, however, has always been to target the abuse, while leaving businesses free to engage in those practies beneficial to both management and the workforce,” President Duterte said in a statement.
