SENATE TACKLES BILL PROTECTING FREELANCERS

The proposed measure seeks to protect the rights of freelancers, including just and timely compensation and imposes a fine on clients who violate those rights.

Senators Joel Villanueva and Bong Revilla on Tuesday, September 8, co-sponsored Senate Bill no. 1810, called the “Freelancers Protection Act.”

A bill seeking to protect the rights of freelance workers has reached the Senate plenary, initiating the concluding salvo of discussions to finalize the proposed measure before its passage.

Both lawmakers cited the current lack of government protection and support for freelance workers, a sector that has grown significantly and was expected to grow even more during the COVID-19 pandemic.
