Senate Approves Shorter Work Days For Local Employees

Under the proposal, which is now approved, alternative working hours shall not exceed 48 hours a week and there is no reduction of existing benefits.

Senator Joel Villanueva, author, and sponsor of the measure said his proposal is an "answer to the changes in the labor market and in the nature of employment."

"As I always say, we are now in the age of robotics, the so-called Fourth Industrial Revolution or Industry 4.0. Today, work need not be confined in a certain place or office. Work need not happen at the same time. Work can be done remotely," he said.
