Director’s Corner
Dir. Cyril L. Ticao

Welcome to the official home of the Philippine Department of Labor and Employment, or DOLE, in the information superhighway.

You will notice that a lot of changes had taken place on this site, may be not as fast as you would hope but don’t worry, we are trying to keep up. Our wish: to keep you benefiting from our Internet home—and browsing.

Working tirelessly to promote gainful employment opportunities, to develop human resources, to protect workers and promote their welfare, and to maintain industrial peace sums up our mandate and philosophy.
You will see that on this site. Click on Services, Programs and Projects and you will get a comprehensive brief on the array of services the DOLE offers on a regular basis. Go to Press Release Archives and obtain first-hand information about our public communication initiatives. 
You need to know the latest on wages? Click Minimum Wage Order and it will link you to the site of our National Wages and Productivity Commission. We even have Downloadable Forms to make it easier for you to transact official business. For transparency’s sake, we post our needs inInvitation to Bid as well as in DOLE Vacancies. And yes, a copy of the Labor Code of the Philippines is now online to help researchers, lawyers, workers, labor organizations, employers, and students.
Knowing how busy you are, we quick-linked our site to the Department’s family of agencies. Other useful pages of information have also been made available for you to gain better and relevant knowledge and insights about the DOLE and how it contributes to the Philippine government’s development efforts.
Of course, we would be happy to hear your comments or suggestions on how to improve our services-delivery capability. Call our Hotline DOLE 2917 from your Globe or TM mobile phones, or 908-2917 from your fixed-line phones for free. You can also text (SMS) us at 2910, or write us at our Contact Address
We do hope your visit to our website will be a pleasure.
