In view of the successive natural disasters that have wrought havoc and destruction in many parts of the country and in sympathy with the victims, the Department of Labor and Employment’s 80th Foundation Anniversary shall be observed not with lavish celebration, but with focused DOLE assistance to ensure their rehabilitation and recovery.

Anticipating the influx of workers who are starting to evacuate disaster-stricken areas after Typhoon Yolanda,  Labor and Employment Secretary Rosalinda Dimapilis-Baldoz yesterday said the Department is making its array of services, particularly its employment services, ‘within the reach’ of those who need them most.

Over 18,000 local and overseas job vacancies await applicants at the three mega job fairs that the Department of Labor and Employment Regional Office No. 6 will conduct in Western Visayas on the occasion of the DOLE's 80th Founding Anniversary on 8 December.

With the need to fast track the delivery of program interventions, Labor Secretary Rosalinda Dimapilis-Baldoz instructed the DOLE Regional Offices through the Bureau of Workers with Special Concerns (BWSC) to accelerate the  profiling of all vulnerable workers nationwide.
