Sun.Star Davao - - TOP STORIES - LHC

The fam­i­lies of the 14 co­conut firm em­ploy­ees who were killed dur­ing an ac­ci­dent in Barangay As­torga in Sta. Cruz, Davao del Sur last June 3, 2018 will re­ceive more ben­e­fits and liveli­hood as­sis­tance this month.

Al­bert Ban­tan, in­for­ma­tion of­fi­cer of Em­ployee’s Com­pen­sa­tion Com­mis­sion (ECC) Unit 11, dur­ing the Con­nect press con­fer­ence at SM Lanang Pre­mier yes­ter­day, said that they will give cash as­sis­tance on Septem­ber 25 to the fam­i­lies of the Franklin Baker Co. em­ploy­ees who fig­ured in a car crash last June.

“We are go­ing to have a press con­fer­ence at the Marco Polo and at the same time give ad­di­tional cash as­sis­tance to the fam­i­lies of the de­ceased,” Ban­tan said.

“We have given them P45,000 for fu­neral ben­e­fits alone, wala pa’y labot ang ilang pen­sion nga madawat (We have given them P45,000 for fu­neral ben­e­fits alone, not in­clud­ing the pen­sion that they will re­ceive),” he added.

Ban­tan added that the De­part­ment of La­bor and Em­ploy­ment (Dole) may pro­vide ad­di­tional liveli­hood as­sis­tance as well.

He also said that they have an up­com­ing award­ing this year for the work­ers who went through am­pu­ta­tion due to work-re­lated ac­ci­dents. /
