NLRC Orients Labor Arbitration Associates on 2011 NLRC Rules of Procedures, Case Management System and Records Management

       Recognizing the essence of capacity building and reforms in the arbitration proceedings, the NLRC conducted a seminar workshop for the Labor Arbitration Associates (LAAs).

       In a nationwide seminar workshop, an orientation for Labor Arbitration Associates (LAAs) from Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao on the 2011 NLRC Rules of Procedure and Case Management was scheduled in June and July 2012.

       In Luzon, the seminar workshop was held last 08-09 June 2012 (1st Batch) and 14-15 June 2012 (2nd Batch) at the NLRC Conference Room, PPSTA Bldg. Banawe, Quezon City, with participants LAA from NCR Arbitration Branch, RABs I, II, III, IV and V.

       The objective of the seminar workshop was to orient the LAAs with the new amendments of the Rules concerning arbitration proceedings and case management system.

       In an opening statement, Chairman Gerardo C. Nograles stressed that while the seminar is a simple orientation, the bigger concern of the NLRC as whole is the promotion of social justice through compulsory arbitration.

       “While it is true in law and in life, exceptions are sometimes difficult to understand than the law, but if there is one rule that admits of no exception, it is that the Labor Arbitration Associates must always adhere to the 2011 NLRC Rules of Procedure for it is the bedrock of labor justice,” Chairman Nograles said. 

        The seminar workshop for the Visayas and Mindanao Labor Arbitration Associates were scheduled sometime in June and July 2012.
