Jollibee tagged in Philippine ‘endo' issue

The country’s largest fast food operator is suspected to be engaged in labor-only contracting.

The Philippines’ Department of Labor and Employment named 20 companies that they claim or suspect to engage in labor-only contracting, depriving employees of security of tenure.

In a report by ABS-CBN News, Jollibee is listed as having topped the list, with 14,960 "affected" workers.

The labor department previously ordered Jollibee and subsidiary Burger King, to regularize about 7,000 workers, prior to Philippine president Rodrigo Duterte signing an executive order to stop “endo” or hiring workers in 5-month-long cycles.
