The paper is based on the premise that the workplace - whether factory, office, farm, plantation or household - can be a strategic entry point for fighting discrimination. everyone gains from eliminating discrimination at work: individuals, enteprises, and society at large. Fairness and justice in the workplace boost the self-esteem and morale of male and female workers and their productivity.

This is a follow-up study of ILO's Global Report on "Time for Equality at work" in the Philippine context. It is based on the assumption that Equality at Work is directly related to Decent Work for All, interpreted as providing "opportunities for women and men to obtain decent and productive work in conditions of freedom, equity, security, and human dignity".
