December 2, 2015
SyCipLaw’s Cebu Office and Employment & Immigration Department (EID), in partnership with the People Management Association of the Philippines (PMAP) Cebu, Inc., held the Kapihan with SyCip in Cebu: Discussion on Labor and Immigration Law last October 9, 2015 at BIG Hotel. A total of 120 participants from 64 companies attended the half-day session.
PMAP-Cebu President Nenit Mantalaba opened the session and Labrel Chairman Aseneth Ouano formally introduced the SyCipLaw partners who gave the lectures.
Russel L. Rodriguez, who is also partner-in-charge of the firm’s Subic Office, gave an overview of recent developments in work visas and permits, immigration laws and regulations, and jurisprudence on deportation. Marianne M. Miguel’s lecture provided participants with legal principles on how to balance employee and employer’s rights, and what employers can do to regulate romantic relationships in the workplace. Dante T. Pamintuan discussed the concept of employee rights to privacy against an employer’s right to regulate the online or offline behavior or its employees.
After the lectures, an open forum and consultation session ensued. The lecturers were joined by SyCipLaw Cebu Partners Alan C. Fontanosa and Thaddeus R. Alvizo to attend to participants’ questions and concerns. Labrel Trustee-in-Charge Jennifer Macairan’s closing remarks followed.
The Kapihan with SyCip in Cebu: Discussion on Labor and Immigration Law on the Labor and Immigration Law Updates is part of SyCipLaw’s Kapihan series, sessions for experts and stakeholders to discuss the most recent legal issues and developments, in line with the firm’s SyCipLaw’s 70th year anniversary. The event is also part of PMAP Cebu’s goal to provide members with updated information that can help them keep abreast with emerging issues and challenges from ASEAN integration, including those concerning people competencies.
