Since COVID-19 has been running rampant across the world, many employees have withdrawn to their homes to work in order to help contain the virus. Teleworking enables them to fulfil work duties while avoiding personal contact with colleagues and preventing the spread of the disease. Although teleworking has long since been a common practice on a part-time or an occasional basis for some, shifting to working full-time in a home office poses a different challenge.
To shed some light upon the issues and challenges of working, teleworking and labor and employment relations in “the new normal”, the UP School of Labor and Industrial Relations (SOLAIR) is organizing the 10th Asian Regional Congress of the International Labor and Employment Relations Association (ILERA), which will be held on line via Zoom on 3-4 December 2020.
This virtual conference on labor and employment relations in Asia assembles a distinguished panel of esteemed scholars who could help navigate the portal of new possibilities in the future of work and employment relations. Experts will share what is known so far about the architecture of emerging employment relations, with the view that the COVID-19 pandemic can serve as a portal or a gateway to a new world that includes a more humane, innovative world of work and employment relations.
Interested participants may register at conference’s official website.
The program can be viewed here: for Day 1 and Day 2
The 10th ILERA Asian Regional Congress is sponsored by the International Labor and Employment Relations Association (ILERA) Executive Committee, the Department of Foreign Affairs, the UP Diliman Office of International Linkages, and the UP Diliman Office for Initiatives in Culture and the Arts.
