1 Foreign Policy Implementation On Philippines on Mon Mar 23, 2015 10:41 am

Can somebody help me confirm if a foreign company can implement their country's law to rule over the Philippine law?

For example:

Company A (a Canadian company branched here in the Philippines) will implement Canadian law over their employees such as Holidays, work ethics, compensation and benefits, etc.

If so, do the employees should be compensated based also in the Canadian rates? Or they can still implement the basic salary based on Philippine Law?

Thank you in advance.

Thank you in advance.

As long as their rates, etc are above the minimum indicated in PH laws then that is fine.

What if they implement their country's law over the PH but insists to apply the PH salary rate:

1.) Would it be considered as a valid cause for legal charges?
2.) If the contract signed does not explicitly states that they will overrule the PH law but implements still, is this a ground to break the bond (example 1-year work bond where I am not allowed to leave the company within the timeframe)?

1. Be specific as to what 'law' they want to implement. I'm sure there are equivalent policies in PH.
2. In a worst case scenario, they cannot implement any policy that is not written and agreed upon by both parties.

If the company is established in Philippines and staff are locally hired in the Philippines by Canadian company, Philippines law applied.
If you are Canadian and were hired in Canada and sent to work by the company in the Philippines then Canadian law applies.
