GMA News Online reports that "the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) will hold town-hall-style public consultations in drawing up the implementing rules and regulations (IRR) of the Kasambahay Act, a new measure that promises to benefit household workers." All DOLE regional directors have been tasked to conduct the town-hall consultations in their respective areas.

 

The report noted: "DOLE Secretary Rosalinda Baldoz said such meetings will reach out to the grassroots in making the IRR for Republic Act 10361." The report also quoted Baldoz, who said, "We are gathering everybody's inputs related to the implementing rules and regulations of the Kasambahay Law because we want to be well-balanced; that the rights of both the kasambahay and the employer are being observed and respected. We are expecting that this law will create a harmonious working relationship between them."

Baldoz also added: "These consultations are held as part of the 90-day period given for the DOLE to come up with an IRR for the Kasambahay Law. Hopefully, by May 10, we can already issue the IRR and have it published in two newspapers of national circulation."
