What you should do if you’re lessee is not paying rentals

In this Cebu’s booming real estate industry, more and more commercial and residential buildings are constructed and rented to businesses or individuals.

Let’s admit it, some renters are not religious in paying rentals. Owners on the other hand sometimes let the violation of their lease contract pass by without doing anything.

But this is income lost already, and something should be done to correct it.

The first thing to do: Send your renter a notice to vacate. This has practical and legal purposes.

Practically, this is to remind the renter of default payments. Sometimes these people are juggling things, that they tend to forget especially if the owner is lenient.

Legally, this is forms the basis for filing a case for ejectment in court.

All in all, the owner has rights as much as the renter. Owners should assert their rights. Opportunity cost is forgone if righs are not asserted.

Opening of Mactan Airport Terminal 2 might just as well boost employment in Cebu

With terminal 2 of MCIA open, the hospitality business might just expand due to increase in tourist coming in.

The more hotels opening up, the employment growth will come. In other words, more people will get jobs.

With it, more labor relations problem will come. But considering the speedy disposition of labor cases in Cebu, problems get resolve quickly and employers and employees get on with their business.

I think DOLE can still absorb increase in employment and labor problems in Cebu, which is good because as they say justice delayed is justice denied.

Inflation rises to 5.2% for June 2018

Life has become hard for the average Filipino. Last month’s 5.2% inflation rate is a huge jump from May’s 4.6% inflation rate.

The high inflation rate for last month was, in part, contributed by the 6.2% increase in food and oil price.

Experts express hope that this will taper off by year end. I wish it will come true.

I still continue, though, to believe in Filipino resilience. This is just a temporary setback. We have seen much more serious problems in the past than this.

Will the Telecommuting Act of 2017 (Senate Bill No. 1363) give me a disadvantage vis-a-vis my other colleagues who are working in the company premises?

{Philippines} In urbanized areas, traffic is a way of life. Though the telecommuting act (S. B. No. 1363) is not mandatory as it is subject to agreement between the employer and employee, it goes a long way to improve the productivity and welfare of the employee. No need to fight the traffic. Less transporation expenses (especiall with the increasing gas prices nowadays).

But in terms of pay and benefits, does the proposed bill ensure that employees get what another employee who is working at the company premises would get?

Senate Bill No. 1363 entitled the Telecommuting Act of 2017 promotes employee welfare

(Philippines) The proposed bill allows employees to “work from home”. Albeit, this is on a voluntary basis at the option of the employer. If this works out, tf would give employees more time for their family and loved ones than fighting the traffic in the country.
