1 Family Welfare Program for DOLE on Tue May 22, 2018 10:56 am


Arresto Menor
Good day. I would like to inquire if a company will have legal liability for violation of the Family Welfare Program for the following situation:

-the company sponsors a company outing
-a few employees cannot attend the said company outing due to an event or activity outside the company that coincides with the date of the outing itself.

i am asking this because the HR in our company was asking for an explanation letter why we cannot attend the said outing but also asked for an explanation as to why the company will not be liable for possible violation of Family Welfare Program as per Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) resolution in order to validate our reason for not attending the outing, and yet they say that the company "does not coerce" the employees to attend and it's pretty ironic.

hoping for an immediate response to this. thank you in advance.

I don't see any problem because the are just being asked to explain. Notices to explain is not something that already imposes a penalty upon the employees, but is merely that, a "notice to explain". You have to understand that company outings can still be considered as official activities of the company. So if you think you have good reasons for not making it to the company outing, then say so in your explanation.
