WHAT IS THE LABOR LAWS COMPLIANCE SYSTEM (LLCS)?
The Labor Laws Compliance System or LLCS is a process started on January 14, 2013 to ensure that workers in the private sector are afforded their benefits. It is based on Department Order 131-13 signed by Secretary Rosalinda Dimapilis-Baldoz on July 19, 2013 .
It replaced the old Labor Standards Enforcement Framework, in effect removing inspection, technical advisory visit and self-assessment as modes of ensuring compliance with general labor standards and occupational safety and health.
