BPOs given until Sunday to prepare alternative work arrangements

MANILA - MalacaƱang said on Sunday that Business process outsourcing (BPO) firms and other similar companies will be allowed until 11:59 p.m. Sunday to arrange the work of their employees and to transfer equipment to be set up at home.

The extension also allows the companies to set up temporary lodging and shuttle arrangements for their staff, Cabinet Secretary Karlo Nograles said in a televised press briefing.

BPOs and similar companies were earlier given until Friday to prepare their alternative work arrangements.

The BPO industry, which employs around 1.1 million people, is a major source of dollars for the Philippines, second only to remittances of overseas Filipino workers.

President Rodrigo Duterte placed the whole of Luzon on lockdown until April 12, disallowing public transport and suspending operations of most businesses except those deemed essential such as supermarkets and drugstores.
