Dept. of Labor and Employment Offices Has Been Attached with CCTV's
From deterring petty crimes and monitoring traffic violations, Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) will now be tapped by the Dept. of Labor and Employment (DoLE) to purge it's ranks from unscrupulous employees. Labor and Employment Sec. Baldoz said on Thursday that DOLE has now installed Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) in it's offices to monitor the transactions in labor offices. Last year, DOLE placed CCTV's in it's halfway homes abroad amid the sex for fly controversy, which involved some of it's overseas labor officers in pimping distressed OFW's in their jurisdiction. Baldoz added they will implement a more transparent raffling of labor cases and conduct random lifestyle check among it's employees. She said they will also speed up the processing of administrative complaints, which are currently pending in DOLE offices like the case of 3 labor officials link for the sex for fly scheme. These measures are part of DOLE's anti corruption practice, which it will implement this year to improve it's public accountability after it received a high mark in a study conducted by Social Weather Services (SWS) on fighting dishonest practice in the government. DOLE was 2nd among 4 government agencies, which gained a good net rating of +43. The 3 other agencies with net good ratings are the Dept. of Education +49, Supreme Court +36 and Dept. of Justice +35. Baldoz lauded the result and vowed to continue improving DOLE's services.
