President Rodrigo Duterte signed Republic Act (RA) No. 11360, which allows the full distribution of all service charges paid by customers in hotels, restaurants, and similar establishments to its employees.
Service Charge Bill
The Senate of the Philippines recently passed the bill which grants rank-and-file workers from the hotel and restaurant industry with full-service charges collected from customer payments. It aims to amend Article 96 of the Labor Code and redistribute 100% of the service charges to employees.
