On September 2, 2019, the Ministry of Labor issued resolution No. DM-402-19, published the following day on the official government publication, which enables individuals to comply with various filing requirements under the law, that previously could only be completed personally or by proxy. Some of the filings that can be completed online include: request to register resignation letters, request to register employment agreements, request for approval of internal bylaws, request for union leaves, etc. Currently, both the in-person and electronic filings will be available.
