She added that the agency is able to connect with micro firms in all provinces around the region.

To accomplish the regional target, all labor inspectors (LIs) and assistant labor inspectors (ALIs) are in close coordination with local government units.

They were also able to conduct preliminary zoning activities in their covered areas even before the actual technical and advisory visit.

After each technical and advisory session, LIs and ALIs assisted all micro establishments in their action plan which shall be their guide in increasing productivity and achieving compliance with labor standards.

DOLE shall monitor and validate the action plans at the end of the three-month period. (CLJD/JLDC- PIA 3)
