The Institute for Labor Studies (ILS) participated in a two-day awareness-raising workshop on “R204 - Transition from the Informal to the Formal Economy Recommendation, 2015 (No. 204)” or the recommendation concerning the transition from the informal to the formal economy organized by the International Labour Organization (ILO) in partnership with the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE), and the National Anti-poverty Commission-Workers in the Informal Sector (NAPC-WIS) from 29 November to 1 December held at the City State Hotel in Ermita, Manila.
The workshop is intended to help foster tripartite discussion and consensus building on issues related to formalization policies and intervention strategies including clarifications on the roles and responsibilities of social partners to engage with governments and other key actors and players on elaborating and implementing successful models that facilitate the transition to formal employment.
The workshop has targeted ILO's tripartite constituency in the country, together with the members of the congress of Philippines, and hopes to pave the way for the design of an integrated policy framework.
