Country report on the performance of various mechanisms and processes for prevention and resolution of individual disputes in the Philippines$7,048

Background

The ILO is undertaking comparative research on the performance of dispute prevention and resolution mechanisms and processes for individual labour disputes within the framework of the Plan of Action adopted in the Governing Body to implement the Conference conclusions concerning the recurrent discussion on social dialogue (102nd Session of the ILC). Taking into account the Conference conclusions and the guidance provided by the GB, the research project is designed to help understand which dispute prevention and resolution mechanisms and processes work best in different contexts and why so as to identify guiding principles for effective dispute resolution for individual labour disputes.
