NLRC is Hiring until October 31, 2022

The National Labor Relations Commission (Filipino: Pambansang Komisyon sa Ugnayang Paggawa, abbreviated NLRC) is a quasi-judicial agency tasked to promote and maintain industrial peace based on social justice by resolving labor and management disputes involving local and overseas workers through compulsory arbitration and alternative modes of dispute resolution. The NLRC is part of the Department of Labor and Employment where its policies and programs are coordinated. The commission dates back to the commonwealth period, when the contract labor law act was passed in the United States Congress on January 23, 1885, it was then implemented in the Philippines on June 6, 1899.

The National Labor Relations Commission (NLRC), a quasi-judicial agency attached to the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE), is mandated to adjudicate labor and management disputes involving both local and overseas workers through compulsory arbitration and alternative modes of dispute resolution. With a strategic mission firmly in place, the NLRC embarked on a far-reaching labor and employment agenda in previous years, furthering its efforts to be the pre-eminent government agency that has taken the lead in promoting and maintaining industrial peace based on social justice through economically-viable dispute settlement machinery. In coordination with the DOLE, the NLRC is presently implementing the Labor and Employment Agenda of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte which includes streamlined procedures, removal of red tape, restoration of integrity and fairness, and a much-strengthened arbitration and adjudication system. While the NLRC’s two core goals – disposition of labor and management disputes based on social justice and promotion and maintenance of industrial peace – are earnestly being pursued, it continues to adopt innovative policies and practices as well as landmark reform measures to ensure the achievement of these goals. Since the creation of the NLRC, it has been persistent in pursuing the reforms in labor and employment that will improve the services and address the problems in labor adjudication process. The extensive campaign instituted by the NLRC in the past years, which has drawn support from both the public and private sectors, made its accomplishments possible.

History

The Philippines was abiding by the contract labor law act until the national assembly through Commonwealth Act No. 103 created the Court of Industrial Relations (CIR) on October 29, 1936. In the onset of CIR's existence it was first placed under the supervision of the Department of Justice. The court consisted of a presiding judge and four associate judges which were then appointed by the President of the Philippines, which should have consent from the commission on appointments.

During the martial law, former president Ferdinand E. Marcos issued presidential decree (P.D.) 21 creating an interim National Labor Relations Commission. It comprised three members the undersecretary of labor as Chairman, the Director of labor relations and the Director of labor standards. The Interim Commission took point in all matters involving employer-employee relations including all disputes and grievances. The interim NLRC existed for two years, until the passage of P.D. 442. The CIR was abolished on November 1, 1974 because of its conflicts with the provisions of the newly formed interim NLRC. The NLRC under P.D. 442 was given the same scope of services to the interim NLRC but had its members increased as the volume of labor cases also increased.

After the EDSA revolution the NLRC was regionalized after the 1986 constitutional convention. The first and second division's main offices are in Manila. These divisions handle cases from the National Capital Region (NCR). The third division, whose offices are also in Manila, handles cases from Luzon except the NCR. The fourth division, which is in Cebu City, handles cases from the Visayas, while the fifth division, in Cagayan de Oro City, handles cases from Mindanao.

The National Labor Relations Commission exercises two (2) kinds of jurisdiction: (1) Original jurisdiction; and (2) Exclusive appellate jurisdiction.

  1. Original jurisdiction:
    • Injunction in ordinary labor disputes to enjoin or restrain any actual or threatened commission of any or all prohibited or unlawful acts or to require the performance of a particular act in any labor dispute which, if not restrained or performed forthwith, may cause grave or irreparable damage to any party;
    • Injunction in strikes or lockouts under Article 264 of the Labor Code; and
    • Certified labor disputes causing or likely to cause a strike or lockout in an industry indispensable to the national interest, certified to it by the Secretary of Labor and Employment for compulsory arbitration.
  2. Exclusive appellate jurisdiction:
    • All cases decided by the Labor Arbiters including contempt cases; and
    • Cases decided by the DOLE Regional Directors or his duly authorized Hearing Officers (under Article 129) involving recovery of wages, simple money claims and other benefits not exceeding P5,000 and not accompanied by claim for reinstatement.
