In the Philippines, anyone can take on a job from 18 on. Those who are employed in the country are covered and protected by employment laws and legislation. In knowing the types of employment, you’ll know the kind of hires needed for a specific project or role. Read on below for more details.
Full-time Work or Casual Employment
This is the most prevalent type of employment. Employees under this category are considered regular and enjoy the usual benefits that come with being officially part of the company. Workers in this category have typically rendered anywhere from six months to one year of service.
Part-time Work or Fixed Employment
Workers under this category render less hours than their regular, full-time peers. This allows more flexibility, but pays less and not all workers are given the standard benefits that comes with being a full-time employee.
Those under probationary employment are either in training or being assessed whether they fit the job role they’re occupying. This period can be anywhere from three to six months depending on the employer. Once the candidate passis this period, he or she is then offered the regular job position. Probationary workers also don’t get the full benefits and perks of being a regular employee.
Seasonal employment is highly dependent on a specific season. This means that a job is only available at a specific time of the year and is meant to fulfill increased work demands associated with that specific season.
This kind of employment is based on the completion of a specific project. Once this has been finished, all project-based contractors also end their work for that specific company. Alternatively, project employment can also be based on a specific time period wherein work needs to be done for a business. This can also be seasonal in nature.
