The Department of Labor and Employment has made final its order for telco giant PLDT Inc. to regularize around 8,000 contractual employees.

DOLE said these employees under contracting and subcontracting arrangements must be regularized and entitled to security of tenure as they were performing jobs that were directly related to the company’s business.
