It is the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE)’s priority to look into the Service Charge of employees in Boracay.
According to DOLE Aklan Provincial Director Bediolo Salvacion, they have been receiving complaints regarding the monthly service charge.
The usual dilemma is that the employees are not receiving the intended rate which causes a conflict between them and their employers.
Meanwhile, Salvacion clarified that it depends if the establishment or company is incurring the said charge, if not, the employees will at the same time receive nothing.
Salvacion however added that a penalty awaits business establishments that cannot provide proof of their income from service charges which also is the basis of how much will go the employees.
