A bill seeking the grant of a P1,000 monthly allowance for work-from-home employees has been filed in the Senate.

Senators Francis Tolentino and Ronald dela Rosa on Monday filed Senate Bill No. 1684 which proposes to expand the coverage of the Telecommuting Act and provide an additional incentive for employees who are working away from their workplaces to help ease their financial burden in paying utilities.

“Working from home tends to increase utility consumption, particularly electricity. Residential energy use has risen due to more people staying at home. Some people even purchase their own equipment for working at home. These additional expenses are out of the employees’ own pockets and for the benefit of the employer’s business,” Tolentino and Dela Rosa said in their bill.

Employers or the collective bargaining agreement are also allowed to provide higher and more favorable terms for the proposed incentives.
