Caritas in Philippines pans Duterte over labor policy – UCA News

They were referring to the practice of allowing businesses to hire employees on six-month contracts to avoid having to give them benefits normally afforded to regular workers. Philippine labor law says contractual workers are not entitled to privileges such as paid leave and bonuses if they are not regular employees — those working for an employer for more than six months.
