OFF The Record: Usapang Civil Duties, Responsibilities, & Recognition as Online Filipino Freelancers

Feeling mo dinidiscriminate ka dahil isa kang “freelancer”? Hindi maapprove sa bangko sa car o housing loan na inaasam-asam mo dahil daming documents na hinahanap na wala ka?

Join me in this episode, at lilinawin natin ang ilan sa major misconceptions, confusion, at kung ano-ano pang issues na kinakaharap ng Filipino freelancers as citizens, featuring our special guest, Hon. Ron Salo.

In this episode, here are a few things that you’ll learn about:

  • The Identity Crisis: A Lack of Recognition or Misidentification?

  • To Be or Not To Be?: A Filipino Freelancer’s Duty On Paying Taxes  

  • Overseas Workers vs Online Freelancers: The Similarities and Differences on Privileges, Civil Duties and Responsibilities 

  • The Matching Game: Labor Code, Civil Code, Employees, and Independent Contractors (Freelancers) 

  • On Contracts and Agreements: Philippine Law, Foreign Law and the Private International Law  

Ito na ang chance nating marinig ang kaliwanagan sa mga kalituhan towards our role and responsibilities as citizens in general, at chance na din na mapakinggan ang ating karapatan bilang Filipino Independent Contractors, a.k.a. Filipino Freelancers. 

This is definitely one big step towards becoming a loud and proud Million Dollar Filipino Freelancer!
