General Posting Guidelines

Think first before posting, think of the the way you phase your question especially when asking for help. Here are some general guidelines.

 

Please use SEARCH first! Tab top of forum.

There is a pretty good chance that unless you have some really odd or unique problem that it has been addressed on our forum before, please use the forum’s search feature first to see if there are already some good threads on the subject. It is easy to search – just click the “Search” tab at the top of the forum page.

 

Be DESCRIPTIVE and Do not use stupid topic names

Post a descriptive topic name! Give a short summary of your problem IN THE SUBJECT. (Don’t use attention getting subjects. They do not get attention and only annoy people).

Here’s a great list of topic subjects YOU SHOULD NOT POST :

I have a question can you help me?

Generally ANYTHING similar to those is unacceptable. Just post your problem.

Here is a good example of a way to post a question

How can I explain to my child the reason they need to go to school?

Remember when people help you, they are doing YOU a favor

Be patient, help people out by posting good descriptions of what you need help with, and not snapping at people with garbage such as “if you are not going to help do not waste my time replying”.

ESLwatch created the topic: Phillipines: Senate approves bill for 120-day maternity leave.
Duterte Gov’t Approves 120 Days Maternity Leave With Pay For Female Workers, 150 Days For Solo Parents

The Senate on Monday, March 06, approved on third and final reading a bill which seeks to expand the maternity leave to 120 days with 22 affirmative votes and zero negative votes.

Under Senate Bill No. 1305, or the “Expanded Maternity Leave Law of 2017”, all female workers regardless of civil status or legitimacy of her child shall be granted 120 days maternity leave with pay and an option to extend for another 30 days without pay.

Meanwhile, solo parents shall be granted a total of 150 days maternity leave with pay.

The measure also grants fathers 30 days leave, who under Republic Act 7322, are granted only seven days of paid leave.

Thirty days of the proposed 120 day maternity leave are transferrable to alternate caregivers such as the spouse, common-law partner, and relative up to the fourth degree of consanguinity, including adoptive parents.

Violators of the proposed law would be penalized with a fine not less than PHP5,000 nor not more than PHP20,000 and imprisonment for not less than six years and one day nor not more than 12 years or both.

The bill was authored and sponsored by Senator Risa Hontiveros, Chair of the Senate Committee on Women, Children, Family Relations and Gender Equality, and Senator Juan Edgardo Angara.

It was also co-authored by Senators Francis Pangilinan, Loren Legarda, Nancy Binay, Manny Pacquiao and Antonio Trillanes IV, with Legarda and Binay as the bill’s co-sponsors.

Hontiveros said the measure would bring the country closer to compliance with the International Labor Organization’s (ILO) standards on maternity protection, a field where Philippine law is alarmingly inadequate.

The Philippine maternity leave law only provides 60 days paid leave which is five weeks short of the minimum prescribed under the International Labor Organization’s Convention 183 which mandates a minimum of 98 days maternity leave.
