13th month pay in jeopardy if businesses can’t operate — Concepcion

Republika

Entrepreneurship adviser Joey Concepcion said that if the Inter-Agency Task Force does not ease up on restrictions for businesses, employees are likely to miss out on receiving their mandated 13th month pay.


He said that the metro can no longer stay at alert level 4, as this hinders sales and profits.


Concepcion asked for businesses to be given a “fighting chance” to recover pandemic-induced losses.


“Thirty percent capacity won’t be enough to cover for the business expenses of our entrepreneurs and to pay off their amortization, employee salaries and 13th month pay. They need more to recover,” he said. “Let’s allow more fully vaccinated individuals to help our business sector as the cases go down.”


With the acceleration of the national vaccination program, the entrepreneurial chief is pushing for operating capacity for many establishments—cinemas included—to come up to 50 or even 70%.
