To ensure standards of excellence, integrity and accountability in all of its programs and activities, the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) will conduct inspection audit of all its regional and field offices.
In Administrative Order No. 430, Labor Secretary Silvetsre H. Bello III has set in motion the audit of DOLE offices with the formation of the Regional Inspection Audit Team to determine enforcement of the labor laws compliance system across the country. The regular inspection audit shall be undertaken every semester.
All DOLE Regional Directors, labor inspectors, other officials and employees who are tasked with the implementation of the inspection of programs and activities will be inspected. We must see to it that the enforcers of the law are ethical and mindful of their responsibilities, Bello said.
The inspection will be random and unannounced and will not be conditioned on any complaint filed against a DOLE official or employee.
The Regional Inspection Audit Team shall submit an audit report within 30 days from the conclusion of the inspection to the Secretary for any appropriate action or further instruction.
In case of findings of violations on the provisions of Code of Conduct for DOLE Officials and Employees, an administrative compliant shall be initiated against the concerned official or employee and shall be disposed in accordance to Administrative Order No. 55, series of 2013 or the Rules on Disposition of Administrative Complaints and Cases in the Department of Labor and Employment.
The said administrative order was issued to further enhance the implementation of the labor laws compliance system in the country. END/Abegail De Vega
