DOLE prohibits no vaccine, no work policies

The Concerned Doctors and Citizens of the Philippines (CDC Ph) supports the current policy of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) prohibiting companies from imposing no vaccine, no work policies, said Dr. Homer Lim, president of CDC Ph.
Labor Advisory 03-21, released by DOLE in March this year, states that while employers may encourage employees to get vaccinated, ‘any employee who refuses or fails to be vaccinated shall not be discriminated against in terms of tenure, promotion, training, pay and other benefits, or terminated from employment. No vaccine, no work policy shall not be allowed.
CDC Ph advocates for the constitutionally protected right of every Filipino to make informed choices especially regarding decisions that directly affect their health and the health of their families and loved ones.
“There are Filipinos who are willing to be voluntarily vaccinated, and there are other Filipinos who are concerned that current COVID-19 vaccines were approved only under an emergency use authorization without long-term clinical trials on side effects and adverse reactions,” Lim said. “The government must serve and protect both groups and not favor one over the other.
