Women No Longer Prohibited From Working at Night
By Atty. Elvin Villanueva, guest author
Do you know that under the Labor Code, women are generally not allowed to work at night?
Article 130 prohibits any company from requiring women to work at night. There are exceptions under Article 131. However, even the exceptions are very restrictive which will make the present practice of call centers employing women at night a violation of the Labor Code.
Congress recently enacted R.A. 10151 allowing employment of night workers and in effect repealing Articles 130 and 131 of the Labor Code.
