DOLE mandates the submission of an Annual Report on Wages to all private establishments

The Department of Labour and Employment (DOLE) released labour advisory No. 09-2022, giving employers the mandate to submit a legitimate annual report containing certain information regarding their employers.

The Department of Labour and Employment (DOLE) released a new labour advisory, adding a new requirement. Following the amendments done to Article 124 of the Labor Code, all private establishments must now submit a legitimate annual report containing “a verified itemised listing of their labour component, specifying the names of their workers and employees below the managerial level, including partners, apprentices and disabled/handicapped workers who were hired under the terms prescribed in the employment contracts, and their corresponding salaries and wages.” as quoted in the advisory.  

This required report applies to all private businesses; as such, to help with the process, DOLE also requires establishments to register and log in to their Annual Establishment Report on Wages online portal page, which can be accessed through the following link: 

The advisory then clarified that reports that already have the information mentioned earlier as of December 2021 must be submitted online between April 11, 2022, and June 30, 2022. In the years after that, all submissions cannot be passed later than January 31 of the following year (For example, reports dated for the calendar year 2022 must be given no later than January 31, 2023).
