Flexible time arrangement at work is a common practice in the Philippines. Working hours in the country can vary depending on the discretion of the employer (provided they fall under local labor laws and industry standards).
Flexible Working Arrangements
In response to the global financial crisis of 2009, the Philippine Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) issued an advisory on how to adopt flexible work arrangements as a guide for private establishments to carry out. In a press release from DOLE, the organization cited that these guidelines will help organizations that wish to adopt flexible work arrangements as a “coping mechanism and remedial measure” in alleviating the effects of the global financial crisis on a local level.
