PLDT to appeal DOLE order


Telecommunications giant PLDT Inc. said it would appeal the Department of Labor and Employment’s ruling directing it to regularize and pay its contractual employees.

In a statement, PLDT said the DOLE resolution did not address the fundamental jurisdictional and due process issues it raised in its appeal to the Office of the Secretary.

“PLDT intends to file a motion for reconsideration within the 10-day prescribed period.,” PLDT said.

The DOLE resolution ordered PLDT to regularize 7,416 employees and pay P66.3 million worth of claims.

Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III said he found no merit to overturn the order issued by DOLE-NCR.
