InterAksyon.com reports that on Tuesday, August 7, Malacañang "stressed that workers in the business process outsourcing (BPO) industry cannot be made to go to work amid the heavy monsoon rains currently battering Metro Manila." The report quoted the tweets of deputy presidential spokesperson Abigail Valte, who answered the questions of some of her followers. She tweeted: "If your employer insists that you go to work, they must be able: (1) to guarantee your safety and (2) pay extra for your attendance."

 

InterAksyon.com also sought the advice of Business Process Association of the Philippines president Benedict Hernandez, who said, "I don't think [a BPO firm] can force employees to come to work. Employees can always file an emergency or a sick leave."
