DOLE eyes e-payment of salaries
BY MARCHEL P. ESPINA
The Department of Labor and Employment in Western Visayas is urging private companies to utilize digital transactions to pay the wages and benefits of their employees, Cyril Ticao, DOLE 6 director, said yesterday.
He said this is a safer alternative to the physical exchange of bills and coins since it reduces physical contact and minimizes transmission or the spread of viruses.
Transaction accounts also reduce costs and risks of physical cash disbursements as well as lessen the threat amid the Covid-19 pandemic, he added.
