Hi to all. I am working for a multinational company who setup an operational center here in the philippines. I've been working for this company for 4 years unfortunately they decided to outsource our business unit before the year ends.

I have a few questions surrounding this matter?
1. Can i refuse to sign the contract from the 3rd party vendor?

I would like to seek your legal advice on this matter. Your responses will be very much appreciated. Thank you.
