Endo is slang for end of contract, a practice that required employees to sign a contract fixing the period of employment to a term shorter than that of the service agreement. This is regarded as unlawful under the provisions of the Labor Code, along with the so-called “5-5-5 hiring practice,” or the repeated hiring of employees for a short duration either with the same or different contractors.

The problems actually lie not in the work arrangement but with the abusive practices that come with it. Filipino workers, especially the younger ones, don’t care about tenure as much as the old days. What they care about is better salary, better benefits, and better treatment. If companies continue to exploit or deprive employees of their rights to basic benefits such as healthcare and social security, it would create an unhealthy, demotivated, and unproductive workforce, which in the long run could be something that kills businesses.

Philippines needs is a law that inhibits employers from blurring their relationship with employees, to prevent abuse and exploitation. Employees who should be regularized — meaning those who have performed essential services with the same company for years — should be acknowledged as such in the terms of their employment. 

We need to educate our selves regarding our options and alternatives and remain hopeful that work arrangements and opportunities will change for us one day.
