    • Description:

      The choice of the title – LABOR and EMPLOYMENT – is deliberate. This is to disabuse the minds of practitioners of law and human resources management, as well as students and the academe in general, about the notion that the scale of our labor laws is flatly tilted in favor of labor. While this may be true to a certain extent, a deeper analysis of all the provisions of the Labor Code and related laws shows that somehow the laws and the interpretation thereof made by the Supreme Court, strike a balance between the prerogatives of capital (that provides employment) and the rights of workers (that provide labor). Indeed, “even as the law is solicitous of the welfare of employees, it must also protect the right of an employer to exercise what are clearly management prerogatives; the free will of management to conduct its own business affairs to achieve its purpose cannot be denied”

      Therefore, this book, as well as the second volume, is an attempt to present a balanced view on and the interplay between the rights and prerogatives of labor and capital. Being a management lawyer for more than two decades now does not necessarily mean that I have seen only the side of management; en route, I have equally witnessed, not from afar but in immersion, the struggles and triumphs of labor.
